A Pensioner recently named Southwark’s Neighbour of the Year has said she feels “terrorised”, after human poo was allegedly pushed through her front door.

Val Fen, 74, of Camberwell, who is also chair of the Elmington Estate’s Tenants’ and Residents’ Association (TRA), said the “disgusting” act happened on February 13.

Val says she was shocked to find someone had “forced a bag of poo through my letter box.”

“I called the police but all they did when they came here was say they were going to ‘take a note of it’.

“I thought they would at least be able to check the bag for finger prints, but nothing has happened.

“It’s made me very frightened especially as my great granddaughter is also here with us a lot of the time.”

It was only at the beginning of February that the ever-popular TRA chair received her Housing Hero award from the borough’s ceremonial mayor. Val was praised for being “caring” and “patient” and for “always going the extra mile”.

A Met Police spokesman confirmed that no arrests had been made following the alleged incident Val reported between 10.30pm on February 12 and 10.15am the next day.
