A property which has been the subject of numerous reports of nuisance and disorder has been granted a closure order by magistrates.

The order was issued at Northampton Magistrates Court on August 17 for 7 Brooke Green, Wellingborough, after police and partner agencies applied for the order following reports of drug use, violence and stolen property at the address.

The anti-social behaviour unit worked with housing and other agencies to build a case for the closure order.

The closure will remain in place for three months and the property has been boarded up and secured to prevent any further nuisance or disorder in the immediate area.
