Tough action has been taken to crackdown on drug use and anti-social behaviour in a city centre St Albans flat.
The court order made on April 1 at St Albans magistrates court is a response to reports and evidence of anti-social behaviour and suspected drug use at a flat on Telford Court on Alma Road.
The order prohibits anyone from entering the property other than the registered tenant, their partner and children, as well as two others for childcare.
Access is also authorised for St Albans council, utility companies in an emergency and the emergency services.
Sergeant Mike Saunders of Herts police said: “We had received numerous reports concerning anti-social behaviour and potential drug related activity at the address.
