POLICE have applied for a closure order on a house in Fleetwood which they claim is a drugs den.

An official notice has been placed on the front door of the property on Shakespeare Road and proceedings have started at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court.

Two people are the subject of the order and were named in court.

Police told the court they believed there were issues of alleged drug taking, drug dealing and anti-social behaviour at the property.

Magistrates agreed to a defence application for an adjournment. The occupants have been told to have no visitors before the case is heard on June 11.
