A woman has been evicted from her home in Sheffield after persistent anti-social behaviour.

Sheffield Council applied for a warrant to evict Suzanne Harding, of Leighton Road, Gleadless, after complaints against her which included harassment of a neighbour, playing loud music, shouting, swearing, smoking cannabis and throwing rubbish.

A police community support officer was also verbally abused by youths staying at her house.

Despite appealing against the eviction, Harding, aged 45, was ordered to leave the property at a hearing at Sheffield County Court.

Coun Harry Harpham, council cabinet member for homes, said, “Miss Harding has proven she cannot or will not agree to the conditions that spell out what tenants can expect from us and what we expect from them.

“We will not tolerate any kind of anti-social behaviour taking place in our properties and Miss Harding is now paying the highest price.”
