No-one is permitted to re-enter the closed premises until the end of the order.

Anyone entering the address without police or court permission, except the landlord and emergency services, may be carrying out an arrestable offence.

PC Lisa Curtis, anti-social behaviour coordinator, said: “We take reports of nuisance and anti-social behaviour seriously and will work with partner agencies to ensure that positive action is taken where necessary.

“We thank the local community for their ongoing support, patience and urge people to continue reporting.”
