Behave yourself, OAP told.


A "REAL life Victor Meldrew" faces five years in jail if he breaks an anti-social behaviour order.

Victor Causabon- Vincent, 72, has fought feuds over decades, flouted court orders and abused council staff.

Last year the OAP was jailed for three months for ignoring a court order to remove 12 cars blocking an access road and insulting a court official.

In 1997 he was given an eight-week sentence following a 20-year row over a garden fence.

He was said to have threatened next-door neighbour Ellen Robinson with a broom.

Causabon-Vincent built his bungalow in Sompting, West Sussex, in 1961.

One local resident said yesterday: "We dread him. People round here say he is the neighbour from hell. Victor Meldrew is an angel compared to him."

Magistrates granted Adur Council's application for an order which prohibits Causabon-Vincent from harassing, abusing and threatening others or obstructing their access.
