A FURIOUS woman has vented her frustration after her neighbours called the police on her for not giving back their son's footballs.

The anonymous woman took to Mumsnet where she explained that while she's not against children playing and doesn't want to come across as grumpy, the footballissue is becoming "ridiculous" as the 10-year-old is often outside playing until 9.30pm.

In the post, she penned: "We have a park which is a 1 min walk from our house and he doesn't even have to walk on a road."

"He isn't a young child. Think he is around 10 so more than acceptable to go to the local park…."

She continued: "Not only is the constant banging from the football annoying but the ball sometimes comes in our garden."

"We once threw it back over the fence 8 times in one evening. So we have been keeping the balls waiting for him to come and ask for them. He never came!"

But the woman was left in shock when she instead received a knock on the door from someone else.

"We then get a knock on the door from the police last week to say we have been keeping the balls and intimating the boy while he is out playing football," she explained.

"I'm at my wits end with it all now. Just don't know if there is anything else we can do about the inconsiderate behaviour?"

The post was flooded with comments, with many saying the woman's neighbours took it way too far.

"A ball coming over into your garden so regularly and banging off your wall is not acceptable," wrote one.

I've never understood why a parent would expect their neighbour to put up with that."

A second commented: "What?? The police came round to investigate ball theft?"

"Round here they won’t even come round for car theft. Ignore it – you aren’t doing anything illegal and the police presumably have better things to allocate resources to."

A third noted: "Seriously? The police came out? What area do you live? It's not a crime, there's no intent to keep."

Meanwhile, another penned: "I’d be stabbing the balls and throwing them back over and blaming it on the sharp plant you have…."
