A council tenant has been evicted from her home after a catalogue of complaints from neighbours about loud music, screaming and threatening behaviour.

Tracey Webster ignored warnings to keep the noise down and failed to change her ways even after the Leeds Anti-Social Behaviour Team (LASBT) seized equipment from the house, at Sissons Road in Middleton. She was removed after LASBT gained a possession order and a warrant to have her evicted.

Coun Mark Dobson, the council’s executive board member with responsibility for Safer Leeds, said: “Applying for an eviction notice is always the last resort, but we were left with no option after this particular tenant refused to change her ways despite a number of warnings.

“There are a range of tools at our disposal to tackle anti-social behaviour, and we will not hesitate to use them with partners if someone is found to be making the lives of neighbours a misery. Anti-social behaviour is real blight on our communities and something that will not be tolerated in any shape or form.”
