A CRACK house in Feltham has been closed by police.
Hounslow Police and the council have succeeded in shutting down 52 Nursery Close for three months, after getting a closure order from Feltham Magistrates' Court.
The closure order came into immediate effect at the beginning of this week.
Residents have been blighted by antisocial behaviour caused by drug users and dealers in the area.
The Chronicle reported in May last year that a Nursery Close resident, who did not want to be named for her own security, was fed up with the "very noticeable" drug dealing near her home.
She said: "Over the last two years it has been noticeable, and very noticeable at that. "It happens on an almost daily basis, in the morning and at night. They just come and go as they please. I speak to the police and they say they know about the problem and are aware of it."
Police carried out surveillance on the address and executed a search warrant after complaints from nearby residents.
Class A drugs were found inside the premises, which resulted in two arrests towards the end of last year.
A 69-year-old female was given a police caution and Sharon Lashley, 45, was arrested for possession of heroin. She pleaded guilty to possession at Feltham Magistrates' Court on December 22 last year and was sentenced on January 20 to 6 months drugs rehabilitation.
This week, officers were pleased to close and seal off the property.
Acting Police Sergeant Sarah James from Feltham Safer Neighbourhood Team said: "The action taken was achieved through working with the local residents whose quality of life has been affected by the activity at this address. I urge that residents should report any suspicious activity to their Safer Neighbourhood Team."
Cllr Ed Mayne, Hounslow’s lead member for crime and community safety said: "Effective partnership working between local authority, police and Hounslow Homes has resulted in action being taken to close a premises involved in the supply of illegal drugs."
