The notices were placed at the two addresses in the Devonshire Quarter today and excludes anyone from attending other than the residents who live there.

Police said the action follows search warrants executed at properties in the area on Thursday last week.

Officers from the Sheffield Central Neighbourhood Team did not say specifically what crimes are alleged to have been committed at the two sites but indicated it was related to anti-social behaviour.
