A COURT has banned all visitors from entering a home in Reading after repeated breaches of Covid laws.

The home on Ruston Close, Reading, had the order imposed on it by Reading Magistrates Court on Thursday, February 18, and is expected to last three months.

Officers applied for the closure order to be made after numerous reports had been made that coronavirus laws were being breached and other antisocial behaviours were being committed.

This means that no one is allowed entry to the house by law, other than the people living there - anyone else outside of this found on the site will be arrested and prosecuted.

Reading Chronicle:

Neighbourhood officer PC Jonathan Bowness, based at Reading police station, said: “This closure order was issued following repeated breaches of the coronavirus regulations.

"The behaviour of those involved was causing a significant impact on the local community and affecting their day to day lives.

"I hope this sends a clear message that this kind of behaviour will not be tolerated.

"The majority of the local community are doing all they can to stay at home and protect others.

"This shows that we will take action against the few who choose to disregard the rules and put others in danger."
