Closure order served to Grimsby property after spike in antisocial behaviour reports

A Grimsby property was served with a closure order this week (Wednesday 3 August) to help prevent antisocial behaviour and crime-related disorder in and around a property on First Avenue, Nunsthorpe.

Sgt Lorraine Paterson of the Grimsby West Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “Reports of antisocial behaviour and associated criminality in the area had increased, and this impacts on the community as a whole.

“We successfully applied for a closure order for the property under Section 80 of the Antisocial Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.

“I hope this closure sends a message to those involved in this behaviour that it won’t be tolerated and continues as a priority for the local Neighbourhood Policing Team.”

The terms of the order mean that the property will remain closed to restricted persons for a period of three months, until 23:59 on Wednesday 2 November 2022.

Sgt Paterson continued: “No one should have to live amongst crime and antisocial behaviour and we as a Force are committed to working with other agencies to support the local community and would ask that anyone witnessing antisocial behaviour of this nature to call us on 101 and report their concerns.”
