Anyone who enters the house will commit an offence and would be liable on summary conviction to imprisonment, a fine, or both.

PC Crossman, who coordinated the operation to close down the address said; "The tenant was aware of our concerns but had refused offers of help, leaving us with no option but to apply for a closure order.

"We are extremely grateful to local residents whose evidence supported our application. The testimonies they provided us were vital to show the court the impact the occupant's behaviour was having on the area."
