Five hit with injunctions for harassing council tenants
Five people have been served with injunction orders after mounting a harassment campaign against vulnerable South Holland District Council tenants in their homes.
The Spalding tenants described feeling powerless to stop the defendants doing as they wished.
Boston County Court heard that the occupiers suffered serious harassment due to the group's behaviour.
Three men and two women have now been banned from the Edward Road, Poplar Court and Hereward Road areas of the town for a total of 12 months.

If found to be in breach of the civil order, they are liable to be arrested by police.
They are Spalding men Alan East, of 213 Winsover Road, and Victor Ford, of 48 Edinburgh Drive, and Sarah King, Rafal Guzik and Samantha Costello, all of no fixed abode.
Cllr Christine Lawton, district council portfolio holder for housing landlord services, said:
“These people preyed on vulnerable tenants in a despicable manner, with no thought or care for the frightening position they were creating. The action the Housing Department has taken in getting these injunctions demonstrates that we take such instances of anti-social behaviour very seriously and will protect our tenants when they are victims.
“We would also like to acknowledge the support we received from police officers and PCSOs from Spalding in providing witness statements and assisting our housing officer in serving the injunction orders.
“I believe this is a fine example of how partnership working can be of benefit to our communities.”
Any suspicious behaviour in and around South Holland District Council homes should be reported to police on 101 or to the council on 01775 761161.
