WARRINGTON Police have successfully applied for a closure order on a residential property in the town due to anti-social behaviour and criminal activity.
The closure order was granted today for an address in Hume Street, Warrington, due to anti-social behaviour and crime at the address, which will now be closed for a period of three months .
The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Police Act 2014 came into force in October 2014 and means that officers can apply for closure orders at premises where somebody is, or has been, causing distress or nuisance.
The order prevents anyone from accessing the property for three months.
The property will now be boarded up for three months, with anyone who enters liable to arrest and up to six months’ prison, or a £5,000 fine, or both.
Residents can report any incidents of Anti Social Behaviour via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
