A closure order has been secured following an affray in which knives and hammers were seen, in Borehamwood.

A partial closure order was granted for the Milby Court property at St Albans Magistrates' Court on Thursday (October 12).

The closure order prohibits anyone other than the tenant and named professionals from entering the address.

Anyone who breaches this order could be arrested and "have further action taken against them".


The initial incident took place on Wednesday, September 13, after which three people were taken into custody. 

Police have confirmed that enquiries into the affray, and a second incident at an address in the area, are continuing at this time.

Senior ASB (anti-social behaviour) officer for Hertsmere, Claire Morris, said: "We will not tolerate those who engage in any kind of disorder which causes fear among the local community.

"Residents should be able to live and work in peace and we will do everything within our power to ensure this is the case.

“Regular patrols have been carried out since the incident and I hope this order provides some additional reassurance around the actions we are taking.

“Anyone with concerns about anti-social behaviour or criminality in their neighbourhood is urged to please report the details to police so that we can take action to make your community safer.

"Your calls can make a real difference."

Cllr Christian Gray, of Hertsmere Borough Council, added: "This is another example of how the Hertsmere Community Safety Partnership works together to keep the borough a safe place for all.”
