A COURT has extended a closure order at a house in Tyldesley for a further three months due to anti-social behaviour.

Wigan and Leigh Magistrates' Court first imposed a three-month closure order on a property on Rutland Road on November 9 after Wigan Council provided information about a number of nuisance complaints.

The council say they are still getting similar reports at the house.

Defendant Estelle Hughes, 50, who is registered as living at the house, was not present in court yesterday, Tuesday, when the order was extended.

A spokesman for Wigan Council said: "We have continued to have reports of anti-social behaviour associated with this property so we applied to have the order extended.

"This will provide reassurance to local residents and ensure they have protection and security."

Up until 4pm on May 9, Estelle, her three sons and one daughter will only be able to enter the house apart from emergency services and Wigan Council.
