Police evict anti-social Leamington residents

Leamington Editorial 22nd Apr, 2017   0

POLICE are warning anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated after tenants in Leamington were evicted.

Warwickshire Police secured a closure order on a property in the town following complaints from neighbours about anti-social behaviour at number 3 Epperstone Court, on Avenue Road.

The order, granted on Thursday under section 80 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 gives officers the power to evict occupants who will not be allowed to return for three months.

PC Andy Whiston said: “This particular address has been frequently associated with anti-social behaviour and criminality, and has been a cause of significant disruption and nuisance to residents nearby.

‚ÄúThis eviction has demonstrated that Warwickshire Police will not tolerate such behaviour at a premises, and where evidence supports it we will look to use these powers again – wherever they are justified to protect our neighbourhoods.”
