Crigglestone visitor receives Injunction


Published by Joanne McNally for Riverside in Housing and also in Communities

Riverside, which manages homes in Crigglestone, Wakefield has been successful in securing an injunction which prevents a visitor from entering or attempting to enter the locality of Crigglestone.

Riverside has successfully obtained an injunction to prevent Danny Thorpe from Walker Avenue in Wakefield from engaging in any acts of anti-social activity on the Crigglestone Estate.

In addition Mr Thorpe is forbidden to enter, attempt to enter, or encourage any other person to enter, the locality of the Crigglestone Estate.

Wakefield police are aware of the Court Order and Riverside would encourage you contact them by ringing on 101 (in confidence) if Mr Thorpe is seen within the area on the map.

The Injunction is in force until April 2015 and if breached Mr Thorpe can be arrested and sent to prison.

Riverside has a zero tolerance approach to dealing with anti-social behaviour of any description and considers all allegations of anti-social behaviour on merit.  Every incident is considered very seriously and Riverside will always consider taking legal action against the perpetrators of anti-social behaviour if left with no other effective alternative.

Jeff Allen, Riverside’s Neighbourhood Services Manager said, “Whilst it is unusual for action to be taken barring someone from a whole area, the severity of Mr Thorpe's actions left us no alternative”.

If you should experience anti-social behaviour or wish to report a problem, please contact our Customer Call Centre on 0345 111 0000 who will treat all calls in the strictest confidence.
