A DRUGS problem has prompted police to take action on a number of houses on two roads in Reading.

Thames Valley Police successfully obtained two closure orders from Reading Magistrates' Court today (November 8) because of anti-social behaviour (ASB) problems.

The order will give police powers to stop people from visiting houses on Rupert Square and Arthur Place in Reading in order to prevent drug-related ASB. 

Residents will be able to access their properties but anyone other than a resident cannot.
