[2] Just look who's going to be your new neighbours!; EXCLUSIVE: Families from hell are nightmare next door.

Scotland's original family from hell told their ex-neighbours last night: "We're coming back to haunt you."

The Grahams were evicted from their council house in Glenrothes, Fife, in 1995 after years of terrorising locals.

But they claim they are returning to Alexander Road, the street dubbed Little Bosnia because of their antics.

Ex-convict Gordon Graham, the head of the seven-strong clan, bragged: "I know people don't want us back, but that's their problem.

"It'll be worth doing it just to annoy them!"

Fife Council have vowed never to rehouse the Grahams, but they claim they have been offered a private let. From the family's bolthole in Fraserburgh, Aberdeen- shire, Graham, 42, added:

We're down there a lot visiting family anyway, so it makes sense to live there.

"We'll let you know when we're arriving!"

Graham's wife Anne, a convicted drug dealer, added: "People said we caused trouble but we didn't.

"We've been staying in Fraserburgh for three years and there has not been one complaint of any sort."

The Grahams' joyriding son, James, 18, is due out of jail in a couple of months. He got five years in 1994 for mowing down former beauty queen Pauline McConnachie in a stolen car. Pauline lost a leg as a result of the accident.

FAMILIES of kids accused of terrorising a housing estate could face eviction.

Housing chiefs in Edinburgh served orders on five families after one harassed pensioner on Edinburgh's Broomhouse estate was forced to seek rehousing.

Florence Mitchell said she loved her house but couldn't stand the nuisance caused by the kids in their early teens any longer.

A council housing spokesman said notice of seeking possession orders were served on five families.

While one family had since left, interviews were carried out with the remaining families and discussions were under way with police and social work over further action.

The spokesman said that while the situation had calmed down, action could still be taken over the next six months if necessary.
