A house in St Neots has been issued with a closure order following police action.

The order was issued to 40 Great High Ground, Loves Farm on 26 November after a successful application from police to Peterborough Magistrates' Court.

The action came as a result of reports of anti-social behaviour, drug use and dealing linked to people visiting the property.

A full closure order has been granted and the property is closed for six weeks.

PC Kersten Richmond from the St Neots Neighbourhood Team said: "Over a prolonged period of time, there have been persistent reports and information relating to this address that resulted in this action being taken.
