JUBILANT residents celebrated as a housing association- supported by police and bailiffs- repossessed a home once occupied by a woman who wreaked havoc on their estate.
"I am really over the moon," said neighbour Maureen Bruce as the house in Prins Avenue, Wisbech, was returned to Wherry Housing Association on Wednesday.

"There was one point where she even had a pet piglet in the house, but it was thrown in the river a couple of weeks later."
Another resident told me: "It is a relief for everyone who lives here that she has finally gone."
Helen Andrew, of Wherry Housing Association, said: "It is a big relief, especially for residents.
"Residents have been very patient and very co-operative and worked with both us and the police in reporting complaints.
"We are pleased to show them that their hard work has paid off."
The house was raided by police in May last year when cannabis was seized. Police also had complaints of shouting, swearing and drinking heavily into the early hours.
Police Sergeant Dave Bax said: "If you want to be anti-social the neighbourhood, like here, will stand up against you. So beware, it could be you next."
He added: "We are pleased this neighbourhood can now return to normality.
