Hello, this is my first post, so please try to bare with me as I explain my issue...
I live on a relatively quiet housing estate on the out skirts of a major city and have done for just over 10 years now. Since 2012, I have been harassed by local yobs (which was dealt with by way of a PIN issued against them and a fine for one) but over the last 2 and a half years, I have been harassed by one particular individual who lives around 150 meters away from my property. Every day, he rides his very loud motorbike past my address, revving and making it "pop" to make me jump and there is no way it is a "fault" on his bike, it is a 2016 plate and this is not the first time or the first bike he has used to do this. He has had 2 other bikes, an Aprilla off-road type bike and a Yamaha 125cc bike in the past, this one he has now is the loudest that he has had so far.
My concern is that this far, I have reported him to police repeatedly, and they have set up 2 meetings and both went nowhere. While I am getting more and more frustrated, he is taking the mickey out of me.
Just today for example, he rode past deliberately revving his bike, which made me jump because it is so loud, it actually makes my clocks and pictures on my wall vibrate, and then he rides down a footpath. around 4 minutes later, he crosses the road, and looks up to my window seeing me there (I was not looking at him, I was writing notes in my diary at the time) and waves (saw this out of the corner of my eye). See while he is telling the police that he isn't harassing me (when he is) he is harassing me behind thier backs and making fun of me while doing it. I have a handicap, and I am of the view he is using that (and the fact that I live alone, parents have all passed on) against me to get away with this. I am close to doing something about him myself, and at this point I don't care about the consequences. It's going to get to a point where I can't take it anymore. He was actually close to forcing me out, and I did move, but decided against it as I was not keen on living in a back garden in an annex, so I moved back. I have complained to his housing association, and they seem to be deliberately mishandling my complaint and ignoring me. Orbit Housing being Orbit Housing, I am not surprised by that, they have been reported many times for this exact same thing.
What I am asking here is this: Is there anything I can do legally to stop this individual continuing to harass me? Or am I stuck with having to deal with it myself?

Hi and welcome to LB
Sorry to hear about your situation.
You might find some useful information in this link; http://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/law...ut-harassment/
In the meantime start a diary of the incidents, and if you can record any incidents (on a mobile perhaps) it might help convince the authorities to do something about this young man.

Hi, please don't take this matter into your hands, as frustrating and upsetting at it is you may end up in more trouble than the trouble maker and possibly worse get hurt.
Have you any neighbours who have witnessed this or have complained to you or anyone else about it?
