A HOME at the centre of prolonged anti-social behaviour has been closed down - with the help of nearby households.

Llandudno Magistrates Court have granted an application from North Wales Police to issue a closure order on 9 Pen-Y-Graig, Denbigh (pictured), due to antisocial behaviour "over a considerable period of time".

Evidence provided to the court showed that the Denbighshire Council-owned property was associated with drug related anti-social behaviour.

Police said evidence was gathered thanks to the assistance of locals.

The Closure Order permits only the named occupant and Denbighshire Council officials access until 11.59pm on August 22.

Inspector Andy Kirkham at Denbigh Police Station said: "It's reassuring the Courts have fully supported our application for a Closure Order on a premises that was attracting individuals intent on disrupting the lives of the vast majority of law abiding citizens.

"I am particularly pleased as the local community worked with us and helped provide the intelligence and information to help us make an application to the courts.

"This is an excellent example of community spirit at its best and should also act as a clear warning to those intent on breaking the law or acting in an anti-social manner."
