ANTI-social residents are being threatened with the boot as police clamp down on loutish behaviour.

Residents who live on Claremont Court, North Shore, said litter and constant noise has been making their lives a misery in the last year.

But today, police, Blackpool Council and Blackpool Coastal Housing have vowed to continue working with the community to stamp out nuisance behaviour.

Four people living in the court have already been given final warnings about their behaviour.

A further four have been issued with anti-social behaviour contracts which outline their bad behaviour.

Coun Gillian Campbell, of Blackpool Council, said: “We’re working with police to deal with problematic tenants who make life a misery for the rest of the community.

“A clear message must be sent out that their actions will not be tolerated.”

Residents today welcomed the tough action.

One neighbour, who did not want to be identified, said: “It’s been murder living here the last year, I’ve thought about leaving.

“We’ve had young tenants dropping dirty nappies out of upstairs windows on to the floor and they drop their empty lager cans everywhere.

“One has already been evicted and they had to replace every door in the property.”

Another resident added: “I have seen syringes lying around here, I’m a single parent and don’t let my children out. There is noise and mess and people hanging round who don’t live here, it’s wrong.”
