‘Anti-social’ Bradford house shutdown

A house in Bradford which was linked to repeated anti-social behaviour and crime has been closed down.

Magistrates granted a closure order for the address on Wharton Avenue, Bierley after West Yorkshire Police and Bradford Council presented evidence to show that the address was linked to a series of incidents including criminal damage, nuisance use of motorbikes, stolen goods and anti-social behaviour over a nine-month period.

The remaining adult resident was served with a notice to leave the property last Friday, 22 September, after which police and council officials attended to complete the closure process.

The property will now remain closed until the landlord has obtained legal possession through the county court.
