Nuisance neighbour receives Injunction


Published by Joanne McNally for Riverside in Communities

Riverside, which manages homes on the North Bransholme estate in Hull, has been successful in securing an Anti Social Behaviour Injunction which prevents a male causing any further nuisance.

Mr Mark Wray of Woolsthorpe Grove is now legally forbidden from causing a nuisance or annoyance to his neighbours, engaging in any threatening behaviour or the use of abusive or insulting words. 

Complaints against Mr Wray included excessive noise coming from his address that disturbed other households, threatening violence and using terms that are offensive and insulting, and, on one occasion, he threw two large pieces of wood at his neighbour’s door and threatened to kill them. 

If Mr Wray breaches the injunction - he can be arrested and sent to prison. The injunction is in force provisionally until 27th January 2015. 

Riverside has a zero tolerance approach to dealing with anti-social behaviour of any description.

Carl Beacock, Riverside’s Anti-Social Behaviour Officer said, “A court order that could ultimately lead to prison (if breached) may seem a sever from of action, but repeated attempts at intervention both by Riverside and Humberside Police have not proved sufficient in curbing the antics of Mr Wray. We are a victim focussed organisation and the matter had reached a point where an order was required for the security and protection of our residents from Mr Wray’s behaviour. If Mr Wray does not adhere to the terms of his order then he will now face arrest and the prospect of explaining his actions to a judge. 

If you are a victim of anti-social behaviour or wish to report problems to Riverside you can contact our 24 hour Customer Service Centre on 0345 111 0000.
