TRIBUTES have been paid to a university lecturer who killed herself after a prolonged dispute with junkie neighbours.

Dr Suzanne Dow, 33, took her own life after neighbours made her life hell with threats and drug parties.

Miss Dow, who was born and raised in Colchester, took an overdose of pills at her home, in Beeston, Nottinghamshire, on October 3 2011.

An inquest was held on Friday and a verdict of suicide was recorded.
