A three-month partial closure order as been granted for a property in Weston following reports of crime.
Magistrates at North Somerset Courthouse approved the police’s application for an address in Meadow Street on Monday.
It was granted after a number of incidents were reported at 85A, including drug offences, theft, violence and antisocial behaviour.
Officers hope this order will have a positive impact and send a message that this type of behaviour will not be tolerated.
Beat manager Ben Whitby said: “The three-month order has been granted due to the frequency of incidents that have happened so far this year.

“The activity has caused distress for businesses and people living nearby to feel unsafe. That is unacceptable.
“The reports we had from the community helped us collect enough evidence to seek this order from the court. Without them, and other agencies assisting us, it would not have been possible.
