They were released on Wednesday, when, in conjunction with North Kesteven District Council, an interim closure order was served on the flat involved.

This was to be heard at Lincoln Magistrates today (Friday) when it was hoped that it would be upgraded to a full closure order “to provide some respite to the other residents in the locality”, according to police.

Only the resident will be allowed to be there. Anyone else is liable to be arrested under the order.
