This is the mother-of-seven whose sons brought misery to a seaside town for two decades.
Shameless Jainine Scamp, 51, refused to apologise over sons Tyler and Shamen Williams’ 20-year reign of terror which began when they became two of the youngest people in Britain to receive Asbos.
Dressed in a grey hooded top with matching sweatpants and with a towel on her head, Scamp declined to discuss her sons’ campaign of chaos.
She was angry after MailOnline tracked her down to her first floor council flat just half a mile from the town’s famous harbour.
Scamp – who lives with her fiancee – said: ‘I don’t want to say anything about it. I don’t want to talk to you.’

This week Tyler and Shamen’s scowling mugshots were released again when the pair each received 13-year sentences for a string of violent attacks involving machetes which took place in just one night in 2021
Tyler Williams and Shamen Williams were just baby-faced 13 and 10-year-olds when Kent Police took their first mugshots and ‘named and shamed’ them for their unruly behaviour
After briefly appearing on the communal walkway at the block the tattooed mother scurried back inside, closing the door behind her.
Tyler and Shamen were aged just 13 and 10 when they first gained notoriety in 2003 after police named and shamed the baby-faced tearaways for generating their own crimewave.
This week their scowling mugshots were released again when the pair each received 13-year sentences for a string of violent attacks involving machetes which took place in just one night in 2021 and was carried out purely ‘for sport’.
The two brothers, along with their younger sibling Brandon, embarked on an hour-long violent spree ‘for sport or fun’ on March 4, 2021, targeting strangers in the street with a machete in Kent.
Tyler, now 33, and Shamen, 30, slashed and stabbed victims at random in the unprovoked assaults which left three men and a woman injured.
One victim, a woman parked in her car near a shop in Gillingham, Kent, at about 9.40pm, was assaulted by Shamen, suffering injuries to her face and head, while her vehicle was damaged by Tyler.
He also brandished a machete at a man and chased him down the street.
Then, at around 10.55pm on Institute Road, Chatham, three men were attacked by Shamen with a machete, with one needing treatment in a London hospital for multiple injuries to his face, shoulder and back, while another was taken to a local hospital.
Although Tyler was unarmed on this occasion and did not inflict any of the wounds himself, he was said to have encouraged Shamen, urging: ‘Go on, do him.’
Tyler, of Tonbridge Road, Maidstone, was subsequently convicted of two offences of affray, possessing a bladed article, criminal damage, wounding with intent, and possessing cocaine with intent to supply.

Younger sibling Brandon, 24, was jailed for 18 months for his involvement in the two incidents at another hearing in December last year
Shamen, of Tupman Close, Rochester, Kent, was convicted of two offences of affray, two of possessing a bladed article, assault causing actual bodily harm, criminal damage, wounding with intent and attempted wounding with intent.
Their previous offending has included attacking victims with their Pitbull crossbreed dogs as well as a clawhammer.
But the brothers’ reign of terror stretches right back to 2003, when Tyler and Shamen, then baby-faced 13 and ten-year-olds, were named and shamed by Kent Police after becoming some of the youngest recipients of Asbos (anti-social behaviour orders) – for generating their own crimewave in Kent.
Younger brother Brandon, 24, was jailed for 18 months for his role in the assaults but is already back on the streets due to time spent on remand.
Labour Home Secretary David Blunkett introduced ASBOs in 1998 in an attempted crackdown on youth disorder.
They have since been replaced in England, Wales and Northern Ireland by civil injunctions and criminal behaviour orders (CBOs).
