THREE houses being repeatedly taken over by anti-social behaviour has been partially sealed by order of a magistrates' judge – after neighbours raised concerns to the police.

The order on three homes in Hazel Crescent and Wrenswood Close, Reading was granted on Tuesday, April 13, by Reading Magistrates' Court under Section 80 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Disorder Act 2014.

Police applied for the order against the property following complaints of anti-social behaviour.

There was also ongoing issues around County line drug dealing, which is currently being investigated by police. 

The partial closure prevents anyone other than the specified persons listed on the order from entering the property for a period of three months.

Anyone who enters the house will commit an offence and would be liable on summary conviction to imprisonment, a fine, or both.
