Scunthorpe property closed following court order

A property on Diana Street in Scunthorpe has been closed following a court order.

The two month closure order was granted at court yesterday for a property in Scunthorpe after the local community reported concerns around antisocial behaviour, violence and drug use at the address.

Under the terms of the order, the tenants of the Diana Street property have been ordered to leave and nobody is allowed inside the address, except for the landlord and those authorised by him to enter for work purposes, for the duration of the order which runs until the end of Saturday 18 July 2020.

PS Shane Jackson of Humberside Police said:

“I hope that the residents feel reassured by the fact that the property has now been closed, putting an end to the issues that they have told us about.  

“My team, especially PCSO Lisa Howie and  PCSO Nicola Ellis, have worked hard over the last few weeks gathering all of the information and creating a strong package to put before the courts as an application for the order, which has today been granted.

“We take all reports of crime and antisocial behaviour seriously and I would encourage anyone who has any information about a problem address in their area to get in touch.

“We will investigate, conducting targeted patrols to disrupt the activity and gather evidence which, where appropriate, we will present to the courts to seek further closure orders.

“If you tell us, we will act. You can report information by calling out non-emergency 101 line or anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. In an emergency always dial 999.”
