Get him out - or leave.

A TYNESIDE woman risks losing her home unless she boots her partner out.

The Gateshead Housing Company has taken legal action against Amy Cook after her partner Colin Martin was arrested several times for offences including possession of heroin, shoplifting and burglary.

The 26-year-old, of Oak Avenue, Dunston, Gateshead, was taken to court for breaching her tenancy agreement because Martin, 32, committed serious criminal offences in the area, and also for not paying her rent.

The housing company gained a Notice of Seeking Possession against Cook at Gateshead County Court.

And she has been warned she could lose her home if she allows Martin to reside, enter or remain at her property, or commits any further tenancy agreement breaches between now and February next year.

Company chief executive Bill Fullen said: "Tenants are responsible for the behaviour of every person living in or visiting their home. We want to help people feel safe in their homes and neighbourhoods, and will not tolerate the small minority of tenants who cause a disturbance to others."
