Brent is a hub of antisocial behaviour, according to the latest police figures.

Around 18 antisocial crimes reported in the borough daily in September 2017.

From spitting in the street to flytipping and an alleged "crack house" that "made neighbours' lives a misery" , Brent residents are exposed to a wide-range of antisocial activities.

Police figures from September 2017 there were a total 551 antisocial behaviour crimes reported in the borough in 30 days.

A council crack down on street-drinking and two p olice orders to shut down "anti-social" properties are some of the recent action to tackle the problem.

On November 6 an alleged "crack house" was closed by police in Fortunegate Road after following reports of "ongoing drug-related antisocial behaviour."

Dudden Hill

Dudden Hill wasn't the worst hit area but there were 37 antisocial instances reported there in September which was higher than the Brent average.

A dispersal zone was rolled out by Dudden Hill Police on September 18 to deal with "antisocial groups of youths and street drinkers" which suggests that the area did have a problem that month.

A map of Dudden Hill police reports shows mosts antisocial crimes happened around Tanfield Avenue.

On November 7, Brent council ordered two men caught spitting in the borough's streets to pay up to £500 in court.

Councillor Eleanor Southwood, lead member for the environment at Brent Council, said: "Spitting in public is unhygienic and is not acceptable on the streets of Brent, which is why we made a decision to use the powers we have at our disposal to crack down on this antisocial behaviour.

"By issuing these fines we are sending out a strong message that this unpleasant behaviour will not be tolerated in the borough.

“Whether you live in Brent or are just passing through, we expect you to treat our streets and parks with respect.

"The majority of residents love where they live and we will take action against those who ruin it for the rest of us."
