A property with connections to criminal and anti-social behaviour in Dagenham has been closed. 

Residents and shop owners have reported seeing acts of prostitution and drug dealing by the building at 24A Whalebone Lane. 

The council and police launched a joint operation to secure a closure order on Tuesday, 2 April, from Barkingside Magistrates Court. 

It will prevent the occupier and other people from using it for inappropriate behaviour.

Anyone who breaks it will be arrested and, if convicted, fined or given a prison sentence. 

A charitable organisation owns the building and will now take back possession of it. 

“The criminal behaviour taking place was completely unacceptable and had a really negative effect on local residents and businesses in this area,” said Councillor, Margaret Mullane. 

“The property closure sends out a crystal clear message: we won’t tolerate criminal and anti-social behaviour in Barking and Dagenham and if you do it, we will come after you.”

She added that similar issues can take up to six months to solve and asked residents to be patient after reporting problems.
