A MAN evicted from his home has been issued with an Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction (ASBI) ordering him not to return to the block of flats where he used to live.

Alan Cutler, 44, was issued with the ASBI in the first case of its kind in Stevenage.

Mr Cutler was evicted from his home in Brent Court for rent arrears in October 2005 but he returned several times to the block, sleeping rough in the communal areas, say the borough council.

He regularly left litter and food on stairways and in the laundry room.

Residents of Brent Court helped the council gather evidence of Mr Cutler's anti-social behaviour and Hitchin County Court issued an injunction against him.

The injunction bans Mr Cutler from entering any of the three tower blocks (Brent Court, High Plash and Harrow Court) in Silam Road. If he breaches the order, Mr Cutler will be guilty of contempt of court, which is punishable by a fine or a maximum two-year prison sentence.

Executive councillor for Housing, Ann Webb, said: "The council will not tolerate anti-social behaviour and we will use all the tools available to us to deal with it.

"If any resident of Brent Court, High Plash or Harrow Court sees Mr Cutler in their block they should notify the council's tenancy enforcement team immediately on 01438 242366, so that our staff can refer the matter to Hitchin County Court.
