Tenants 'from hell' trashed grandfather's home and left walls and floors ...

Two female 'tenants from hell' trashed a grandfather's home by smearing cat faeces all over the walls and floors and left him with a £21,500 bill. 

Landlord Tommy Lappin, 68, wasn't even able to gain entry to his home for 10 months but was revolted by what he eventually discovered.  

He had expected to give the three-bedroom property a 'quick hoover and carpet clean' before welcoming new tenants but was stunned to discover the house in Swindon, Wiltshire, in a horrific state. 

The carpets, walls and furniture throughout the terraced property were caked in stinking cat faeces  and littered with mounds of rubbish.

Retired construction equipment trainer Mr Lappin claims he'll be forced to fork out £15,000 to clean and repair the property - on top of another £6,500 he claims the tenants owe him in unpaid rent and bills.

In footage from when Mr Lappin finally accessed the house in early September, daughter Sharon Hughes, 49, and granddaughter Maisie Paget, 19, can be heard gasping in shock.

As he entered the property he was overwhelmed by the vile odour and has been forced to wear a hazmat suit with breathing apparatus to protect himself while throwing out every piece of furniture.

He believes that because the tenants are unemployed he will never get back the £15,000 it cost to repair the property and has no faith in the courts to bring them to justice.

Mr Lappin, from Marlborough, Wiltshire, said: 'They really were tenants from hell, I was absolutely devastated when I saw the house, it was a real state.

'When I walked through the door I couldn't believe it, it was absolutely horrendous.

'I felt shock, I never, ever expected the state of this house to be like it was.

'I couldn't believe my eyes, nor could my daughter or granddaughter.

'It was full of cat faeces, on every piece of furniture, carpet, everything.

'This is my pension I'm spending here, on my house in the time I should be going off and enjoying myself, and I can't because I'm here doing this and cleaning up their mess.

'I would guess the damage would cost me somewhere between £12,000 and £15,000 to replace the furniture and restore it.

'This was a fully furnished, fully functioning house and we've had to thrown away every piece of furniture.

'All the furniture had faeces on it, as a cat climbs on
