A HOUSE 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 a house Hungerford, West Berkshire, was granted on Tuesday, August 2, 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.

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.

Thames Valley Police shared a message on social media, which said: "Yesterday #HungerfordandDowlandsNHPT and the problem solving team successfully obtained a three Month House Closure Order at an address in Hungerford.

"ASB, disorder and nuisance behaviour will not be tolerated in our communities and we will continue to protect the community."
