POLICE have closed down a Burnham home following years of reports of anti-social behaviour and drug use.

The closure order, which applies to, 69 Orchardville, Burnham, makes it an offence to reside in or enter the building without a reasonable excuse. The property has now been boarded up.

Sgt Lucy Ludovici, of Taplow police station, said: “This closure follows an investigation and collation of evidence and information on the property and people within it, and will prevent anyone from entering the property.

"I would like to thank those from the safer neighbourhood and intelligence teams for their hard work in obtaining this closure order. I would also like to thank the community, who have had to live through these problems, for their support.

"We are committed to safeguarding residents and will do what is necessary to protect our communities from anti-social behaviour and crime.

Sgt Ludovici urged anyone with concerns over buildings being used for illegal activity to call the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
