Police patrols have been ongoing throughout this afternoon after a closure order was placed on a house in Whitley.

Neighborhood officers from Reading South have been seen engaging with residents in the general vicinity as they collect ‘intelligence’.

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

The cause of many closure orders is due to anti-social behaviour reported at the property. Police have not confirmed the reason for this closure order.

Thames Valley Police have said that they are ‘carrying out checks and gathering lots of intelligence.’
