Capture5After causing misery, fear and distress to people using a transport interchange in North Tyneside, the parents of two troublesome teens have been told their homes could be in jeopardy.

It follows frequent complaints from the interchange’s staff and passengers about the two girls using foul language, setting off fire alarms and intimidating others.

Despite being given ‘Nexus Exclusion Orders’, banning them from the transport network for six-months, they continued to hang around the station and cause more distress.

And now, in a bid to stop the pair causing further problems, North Tyneside Council has visited the homes of the teenagers.

During the visit, the council’s safer estates team issued their parents with a ‘Notice of Seeking Possession’, meaning their council tenancies could be terminated if their children don’t change their ways.

Colin Boxshall, safer estates manager, said: “No one should feel frightened or intimidated using public transport, or anywhere in the borough, and we take quick and appropriate action against those who cause such problems.

“This case is another example of how closely we work with our partners to ensure the safety of our residents and visitors to the borough.

“North Tyneside is a fantastic place to live, work and visit – the vast majority of residents, young and old, make brilliant contributions to our community – and we will not allow a small minority to spoil it.”
