A three month legal dispute has left a mum unable to access her own garden after a neighbour used a padlock to stop use of a garden gate.
Naima Watt, from Ayr, Scotland, has been locked out of her own property's outdoor space after her neighbour locked a garden gate and then created a wall of bins.
The issue stems from a communal pathway running in from of the gardens – between the backdoors and actual garden area – which has, for some reason, been locked by other neighbours.

This has prevented the mum-of-one from leaving the property via the back passage.
It has also made it impossible for her son to use his bike – which he is currently taking lessons on.
The 36-year-old has been left so desperate from the sad situation that she feels like “someone is controlling her life”.
She told AyrshireLive : “I feel like someone else is controlling my whole life.
“I just can’t stop shaking and I get upset every time I think about it.
“I’m desperate for it to stop, it has been going on for three months and it is just so much negative energy that I need to live next to.
“I can’t get parcels delivered, when it was Kai’s birthday his presents were late because I had to collect them from a depot. The window cleaners can’t get access, my son can’t get his bike out from the back.

“I once ended up locked out as well because the front door closed when I was out and I couldn’t get back in via the back.”
Naima says she has contacted her the council, police and a lawyer through legal aid but only her landlord is the one who can help the situation, she claims.
She has called on her landlord to fix it, but they have so far not done so – nor wished to comment when asked by AyrshireLive.
The local council have also not been been able to help due to both parties not being council tenants.
A council spokesman said: “We provide a service to anyone reporting cases of anti-social behaviour. We investigated this particular issue and there was no evidence of anti-social behaviour.
“We offered mediation to the parties to help them resolve their access dispute but this was declined.
“We have advised both the home owner and the private landlord, that they will need to contact their own solicitor to resolve the issue.”
