A property in Weymouth has been served a closure order due to the effect antisocial behaviour was having on local residents.

An initial closure notice prohibits access to the property for a period of up to three months for anyone that isn’t the owner or someone who “habitually lives on the premises”.

Now that the case has been heard before court, the closure order also applies to the resident of the property who is also not allowed back for three months.

Weymouth & Portland Police say the order was sought "due to persistent antisocial behaviour, the effect it was having on the local residents and the risks the address posed to young people."

A spokesperson for Weymouth & Portland Police said: "We shall monitor the address to ensure it remains empty. Anyone found inside is liable for arrest."
