A CALDICOT house has been boarded up after anti-social behaviour.

The house in Longfellow Close was boarded up on Wednesday, July 21 after a closure order was granted on July 16 at Newport Magistrates Court.

Anyone who attempts to enter the house during the three-month period up to October 21 can be arrested.

Gwent Police’s Monmouthshire inspector Nikki Hughes said: “High levels of anti-social behaviour linked to this property has negatively affected the quality of life for residents within the local community of Caldicot for the past few months. Officers have worked with residents and partners to obtain this closure order.
