A "nuisance" flat will remain closed for another three months after the court ordered that it remain locked down.

In January, a flat in Owen Place, Aylesbury, was issued with a closure order due to anti-social and nuisance behaviour.

This three-month order was due to end on April 6, but at a hearing at Milton Keynes Magistrates' Court two days before the deadline, police requested that the closure be extended for another three months.

After the application was heard by the magistrates, they ruled that the order should stay in place for another three months.

The order prevents anyone from entering the property other than certain named people and emergency services.

Police issued the closure notice for the property under section 82 of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.

According to the act, a court can issue a closure order if a person there has engaged, or is likely to engage in disorderly, offensive or criminal behaviour.

The order can also be issued if the premises are used for nuisance to the public, or if disorder nearby is associated with the premises.
