A Riverside flat has been closed by police after complaints about drugs and drug-related anti-social behaviour.

South Wales Police, Cardiff Council and Cadwyn Housing Association acted after complaints over the last two months about a tenant at Litchfield Court.

Two warrants were carried out at the flat, and on both occasions cocaine and drug paraphenialia, including syringes, were found.

Using the Anti Social Behaviour Act 2004, police have the power to close down premises associated with disorder or serious nuisance relating to Class A drugs, and a closure order was granted for the flat by Cardiff Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

PC Andrew Lewis, Riverside neighbourhood beat manager, said “Drugs have a devastating effect on people’s lives and the community which we will not tolerate.

“We would like to thank the residents of Litchfield Court for their patience and support while we applied for the Closure Order.

“I hope it goes someway in improving their quality of life and that they can now have a happy and peaceful Christmas.”
