CONCERNS of drug-related activity in the Railway Village has led to one house being given a partial closure order.

This means that anyone other than the person living there or others listed on the closure notice are not allowed inside the London Street address.

The order follows a busy week of 61 arrests during county lines crackdown Operation Samphire which targeted drugs gangs who from other regions who ply their illegal trade in Swindon.

Sgt James Neighbour said: “Closure orders of this nature are sought for properties where there have been reports of continued drug activity. It is hoped that by putting these orders in place, the resident will be protected from further exploitation and criminal activity.

“Operation Samphire was a huge success and I’d like to reassure the community that officers are continuing to follow up community concerns and intelligence gleaned from this operation. We are keen to keep the momentum going and will continue to ensure Swindon remains a hostile environment for those causing harm to our community through drug dealing.”

If you suspect drug activity in your neighbourhood, please report it by calling 101.
