A vegan family have sent a second threatening letter to their neighbour after an initial one was ignored, following a dispute over the smell of barbecued meat.

The disagreement has caused much debate online with some believing it is a "reasonable" request, while others have suggested that the family go ahead with another barbecue in protest, arguing that no one should dictate what happens in your garden. After their initial pleas were disregarded by their carnivorous neighbours, the vegans felt compelled to post a "last warning".

In the first note, written and signed by 'Sarah, Wayne and kids', they requested: "Hello neighbour, could you please shut your side window when cooking please? My family are vegan (we eat only plant-based foods) and the smell of the meat you cook makes us feel sick and upset. We would appreciate your understanding."

Unfortunately, their request fell on deaf ears. In the subsequent letter, there was an apparent shift in tone from the aggrieved family.

They accused their neighbour of 'taking the mickey' and being 'downright rude'. The author also claimed their neighbour intentionally sought to cause distress, stating: "I raised my concerns of the smell of meat making my family feel sick and upset and you go and have a barbecue on Saturday night inviting lots of people, and you knew this would affect me and my family.", reports the Mirror.

The family was shocked to discover that their letter had been circulated online. "My friend Tina told me you took my letter to social media and it backfired on you which is 'just desserts'."

The letter ended with a final request: "Please no more BBQs and please keep that window closed when cooking otherwise I'm going to report you and go to social media too."

Despite this, the letter found its way onto the internet once again, sparking a fresh round of debate. One individual expressed disbelief, commenting, "This is unbelievable, they want to tell you how to live in your own home,".

Another person remarked: "They are both in the wrong! ! It's such a shame that this is our society now no commUNITY! ! #1 If you're asking someone to shut their window just shut your bloody own... #2 You can't tell another person how to live their lives or what to do, you make the changes for yourself. #3 If your neighbour has asked you something kindly that you don't agree with address it respectfully like an adult."
