A man has been charged after police closed down an address at a block of flats in Gosport.

On April 24, police successfully applied at court for a flat in Blake Court in South Street to be partially closed for three months.

This meant that no-one could enter the flat other than those who have a lawful reason to enter such as police, emergency services and partners.

Clint Herlihy, of South Street in Gosport, has since been charged with two counts of aiding and abetting entry to a premise in contravention of a closure order.

This relates to alleged incidents between April 28 and May 2, police said.

He was bailed to appear at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court on May 30.
