Close to tears, Boyle said: “I’m really worried about getting these threatening calls – I haven’t slept much since they started.

“I am very vulnerable as I live on my own and they have made me very upset.

“I do not like getting these calls and something must be done to stop this guy.

“I really don’t know who he is or how he got my number. It is all a mystery and came very suddenly over the weekend.

“He doesn’t sound like a local person but he keeps calling my home.”

Boyle also indicated that she had passed the number of the caller to the police.

A police spokeswoman said: “Police in West Lothian received a report of nuisance phone calls received at an address in Blackburn on Saturday 20th June.

“Enquiries into the full circumstances surrounding this incident are ongoing.”
