A Wisbech home has been “closed” by a court following persistent anti-social behaviour (ASB) relating to drug use and dealing at the premises.

The order was issued to 20 West Street by the local Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) after a successful application to Cambridge Magistrates’ Court yesterday (Tuesday).

It states the premises is to be “closed immediately to all persons” – including the legal tenant – “and remain closed for three months”.

Police say people have “have engaged in anti-social behaviour on the premises and its use is associated with significant and persistent disorder or persistent serious nuisance to the public”.

PC Foster-Bentham, from the Wisbech NPT, said: “I hope this action provides some reassurance to the local community that we take concerns of anti-social behaviour seriously.

“Despite warrants being carried out by both us and Norfolk police the activity has continued to take place, therefore we have used our powers to apply for a full closure order to temporarily remove everyone from the property.”

He added that breaching the order is a criminal offence which could result in imprisonment for up to three months, a fine, or both.
