A house in Werrington has been closed by police following complaints about anti-social behaviour.

The full closure order was served on 58 Wainwright on Wednesday January 24 following a successful application at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court by the local Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT).

The action came as a result of frequent reports of anti-social behaviour, drug use and criminal activity.

The order, which is in place until April 23, states the property is closed to everyone, including the legal tenant, with the exception of emergency services, the landlord and contractors with permission from the landlord.

Failure to comply with the order is a criminal offence which could result in imprisonment for up to three months, a fine, or both.

PC Antonio Monteiro, from Peterborough’s Northern NPT, said: “The persistent complaints we’ve received about the tenant and other individuals who frequented the address by the community demonstrates why we needed to take action.

“We hope that this closure order provides reassurance to the community that we have listened to their concerns and are putting measures in place to resolve local issues and improve the lives of the community.”
