Taunton legal highs shop Hush closes after court order

A shop selling legal highs in Somerset has closed after police said it was responsible for serious nuisance and disorder in the town.

Taunton magistrates granted an application for police to close Hush in Bridge Street for three months under the new Anti-social Behaviour Act.

Officers said legal highs caused "horrific problems" in Taunton.

Taunton Deane councillors recently voted to ban the sale of the substances in premises rented from the authority.
