A house in Falmouth has been put under a three-month closure order by the courts over anti-social behaviour.

It was one of two to be 'closed' by Truro Magistrates' Court during separate hearings last week.

Both cases came before the court at the request of Devon and Cornwall Police.

Officers had applied for a closure order on 18 Oakfield Road, Falmouth, which was served on September 26 this year.

The court was told this was being made under the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, for 'nuisance or disorder'.

Vicki Lee Quick, aged 42, was in court to contest the closure order, but it was granted by magistrates.

The Bench ordered that 18 Oakfield Road be closed immediately and remain closed for three months.

It further ordered that no one should enter the property, with the exception of the landlord or their representatives, for three months, as of October 5, 2021.

Anyone who breaks the order would be committing a criminal offence, which was punishable with up to 51 weeks in prison or a fine, or both.

The same order was made for 45 Kinsman Estate in Bodmin.

In this case Tyler Thomas-Knight did not contest the issue, and consented to the order being made.

This property was closed immediately, for three months.

The only people who will be able to access the property are the landlord or owner of the premises, the tenants or owners of flats 37, 39, 41, 43, and 47, and any guest who visits the named flats with the occupier's consent, other than Tyler Thomas-Knight, Robert Whitehead and Sharon Penny, who, the court said "for the avoidance of doubt may not have access to any of the flats, the block or it's communal areas at anytime for any purpose."

Again, breaking this order is punishable with up to 51 weeks imprisonment or a fine, or both.
