"Anti-social behaviour has consequences for this resident."

Kevin Page, who lives in the building, had previously spoken out about the antisocial behaviour issues.

He said he received a letter from police about the closure order on August 9.

He said: "I am pleased with it, but I think we should all be pushing for this to be a permanent closure order, or to be automatically renewed."

He called for Hobdens, the building’s management company, to 'meet with all the shareholders so we can have a say about the damage outstanding since 2017, and for people to pull their fingers out and get the damage sorted'.
