A flat in Norwich which police say was at the centre of drug use and anti-social behaviour has been shut down.

The property on Derby Street was used for illegal drug activity.

Police have worked closely with partner agencies, including Norwich City Council, to address concerns from residents and sought a closure order after securing evidence of drugs misuse at the address.

A closure order under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 was granted at Norwich Magistrates Court for a period of three months making it a criminal offence for anybody to be inside the property.

The closure is another positive outcome under Operation Gravity, Norfolk Constabulary’s campaign targeting the supply and transportation of Class A drugs in the county.

"We’re committed to tackling and reducing this type of behaviour which will help to improve the quality of life for local residents."
