Eviction and prison for anti-social couple

April 13 2017 | Articles | News

A Northwards tenant has lost her home and her partner has been jailed after making life miserable for neighbours.

Katie Henry, 26, has been evicted from Norville Avenue, New Moston, after her partner, 27-year-old Nathaniel Carr, terrorised residents with abusive and threatening behaviour.

Manchester County Court heard that, as well as damaging a neighbour’s fencing, Carr threatened to stab one tenant and burn down their house.

Screaming, shouting, swearing and fighting

Together, the couple also subjected neighbours to a regular racket of noise and foul language. In a statement to the court, one neighbour said: “I have heard nothing but screaming, shouting, swearing and fighting coming from their address and I cannot cope with Katie and Nathaniel’s behaviour anymore.”

After listening to the evidence, the judge gave us immediate possession of Henry’s home.

In 2016, Carr was given an injunction barring him from entering Norville Avenue. He has now been sentenced to seven months behind bars for breaking the injunction.

Huge result

Mike Stevens, Northwards’ director of neighbourhood services, said: “This is a huge result for Henry’s neighbours, whose lives have been so blighted by this couple’s actions.

“Henry and Carr had no respect for other residents, no respect for Henry’s tenancy agreement and no respect for the law. But the buck stops here and they are finally having to face the consequences of their actions.

“We will not let anyone get away with this kind of behaviour. If you report it to us, we will do everything in our power to put a stop to it.”
