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

The order on a house in Northumberland avenue, Whitley was granted on Monday, November 15, by Reading Magistrates' Court under Section 80 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Disorder Act 2014.

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

There were also concerns around drug dealing originating from the properties.

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