A flat in Leeds has been boarded up after more than 80 complaints about anti-social behaviour.

The tenant of the property, on Broadlea Terrace, Bramley, was evicted after ignoring repeated demands to cut down on noise nuisance.

Magistrates granted permission for police to shut the flat after court action by Leeds City Council.

Coun Mark Dobson, executive board member for Safer Leeds, said: “Noise nuisance is a real blight on our communities, and we’re working very hard with our partners to crack down on this problem across the city.

“We have given this particular individual numerous chances to change his ways, using all the legal tools available to us which he continued to ignore. Even seizing equipment didn’t stop this individual.

“This is simply not acceptable so we’ve taken the necessary steps to evict this inconsiderate tenant.”

“We would ask anyone who is experiencing noise nuisance to not hesitate and contact us as soon as possible.”
