An address at a housing block has been banned from having visitors after anti-social behaviour and drug use complaints on the site.

Neighbourhood policing teams for St Albans and St Edwards ward obtained a closure order on April 19 from Barkingside Magistrates Court for a residential address in Logan Court at Logan Mews, Romford.

The order comes after the Metropolitan Police said they received “countless calls” reporting anti-social behaviour, drug use, littering, drugs paraphernalia, criminal damage and loud disturbances both inside the flat and around the communal areas.

A spokesperson said these "caused months of distress to the neighbourhood".

The order, the police added, relates to a single occupant and is valid for three months during which time the resident can stay at the address but have no visitors except for local authorities and emergency services.

Inspector Matt Willison thanked residents and partners for providing them the information on the case.

“We wholeheartedly understand how much the residents of Logan Court were affected by this anti-social and nuisance behaviour.

“We are clear in our message that we will not tolerate this kind of behaviour in Havering and will take robust action where needed."
