Isle of Man eviction warning in anti-social clamp down

A new link up between the Isle of Man constabulary and Douglas Council will make it easier to evict culprits of anti-social behaviour, say the police.

The project brings together the council and police in an effort to crack down on the problem in the island's capital.

The scheme has already resulted in the eviction of a council tenant who police said caused "distress" to neighbours.

Inspector Mark Britton said: "This is all about improving the quality of life for people living in Douglas."

He added: "I hope that this most recent case of eviction acts as a deterrent- we will not hesitate to make strong representations to the Council in the most extreme cases that certain tenants should face eviction."
