I’ve told the council I don’t want them near my home.” Responding to Sharon's claims, a spokesperson for North Lanarkshire Council said the local authority has provided “extensive support” to Mrs Fleming over a number of years and will continue to do so. The spokesperson added: “We are treating this matter seriously and are keen to resolve the matter to a satisfactory conclusion. “However, in order for us to fully complete the works the tenant needs to allow us entry to the property when we have made pre-arranged appointments with them to carry out the work required.”
