A closure order for a property linked to "rowdy behaviour" and assault has been extended for a further three months.

The ruling was made on Thursday (April 25) and means that no one other than the emergency services and utility companies can enter the Livingstone Walk address for this period of time.

Anyone who breaches the order could be arrested, with further action taken against them.

A full closure order for the home had been granted on Friday, January 26, at St Albans Magistrates' Court following reports of assault, drug supply and use and "rowdy behaviour" with loud music being played.

Despite warnings, the behaviour continued with police regularly having to attend.

Sergeant Craig Butler said: "The behaviour at the address was completely unacceptable and causing misery for those living in the area.

"We’ve worked with our local partners and the courts to ensure that the address remains off limits, continuing to provide some much-needed respite.


“If you have information about suspected drug activity and anti-social behaviour in your neighbourhood, please don’t hesitate to report it to us so we can build up the intelligence we need to take action.”
