Residents at ‘end of tether’ in flats
ANTI-social behaviour around a block of flats on a Luton estate has left the area “like living in world war three” according to residents.
Residents living in a block of communal flats in Whipperly Ring say they are at the end of their tether with people believed to be dealing drugs in a communal quadrangle of land to the rear of the building coming and going at all hours.
And they say that, despite their complaints, Luton Borough Council deny that there is a problem in the area.
Resident Robert Norris told the Luton News: “It’s not a very nice situation to be in. None of us have got a life here, it’s been taken over by deviants. this is a nice estate and there’s a lot of elderly residents, it just takes a few people to ruin it.”
Mr Norris added that people gathering to smoke and drink in communal areas is intimidating residents and that they daren’t leave their homes at night.
A Town Hall spokesman said this week: “The council and the police are working with anyone who has reported antisocial behaviour to help resolve the issue. (Criminal activity is, of course, handled by the Police).
“To report antisocial behaviour please telephone the Police on 101 or contact the Council on 01582 556629.
“The Farley Hill ward councillors hold a surgery in the Farley Hill Community every Saturday from 10am-12pm specifically for local residents to come along and discuss any issues or concerns, and they have not received any recent reports about antisocial behaviour.”
