Dudley neighbour who made lives a misery evicted

For years she had been making her neighbours’ lives a misery by persistently abusing and threatening them.

But now 60-year-old Beryl Rose will be evicted from her home in Tenbury House, Halesowen after council bosses took action.

In December she was jailed for six months for breaching an interim injunction taken out against her to stop her intimidating, aggressive and threatening conduct.

Dudley Council has now been given the power to repossess her flat, which comes into force on January 22, for persistent abuse, threats of violence and racially aggravated behaviour. Rose was also made subject to a two-year injunction banning her from the estate.

Residents had contacted the council for help, having becoming fed up of her anti-social behaviour.

The injunction also bans Rose from using threatening or violent behaviour towards other residents within 100 metres of any other property where she lives in the Dudley borough in the future.

At the hearing at Dudley County Court, Rose was ordered to pay rent arrears totalling £1,164.33 and legal costs of £1,169.50.
