A woman from Holt Park, who made her neighbours’ lives a misery, has been evicted from her home and banned from the area.

Holt Park eviction noticeLouise Thornton, 28, gave her neighbours a torrid time with her drunken, abusive and violent behaviour.

A joint action by Leeds City Council, North West Leeds Homes and West Yorkshire Police, resulted in Thornton receiving a Closure Order for her Holt Park flat, 41 Holtdale Drive.

An injunction, banning her from the district, was also imposed by District Judge Giles at Leeds County Court.

Thornton had been the reason behind many anti-social behaviour complaints in Holt Park over the last couple of years. These included threats to neighbours, being drunk and abusive in the street and had stolen money from a vulnerable neighbour on over 40 occasions.

Cllr Peter Gruen, executive board member for community safety and chairman of the Safer Leeds board, said: “This catalogue of antisocial behaviour had a negative impact on the lives of decent, law abiding people.

“Despite our frequent efforts to help and support Louise Thornton to stop behaving this way. We had no choice but to take action through the courts to remove her from the property and the local community.”
