Police secure closure order for Gloucester shop

A three-month closure order has been secured by police at a premises on Eastgate Street, Gloucester in connection with the sale and distribution of illegal tobacco.

An application made by Gloucestershire Constabulary in partnership with Trading Standards was granted in court.

A temporary closure notice had been put in place at the ground floor retail premises of 124 Eastgate Street, Asian European Store, on Wednesday 6 June. The full closure order was secured at Cheltenham Magistrates' Court.

Breaching a closure order is a criminal offence and means no-one is allowed to access the address - anyone doing so could be arrested.

Gloucestershire police said: "This is a great example of partners working together to act on community concerns which have been raised.

"If you have concerns in your community, contact your neighbourhood policing team."
