A controversial care home that made life a misery for its neighbours is to close after Essex County Council removed the young residents...Hurrah!
...over fears for their safety.Oh.
Did they mean the safety of the neighbours ? Well, no:
County council officers took the decision to pull young people out of the home following an incident on July 14 when two of its residents were attacked in the street.Up until then, they'sd been quite blase about the activities of these little darlings:
Residents living near to the home for vulnerable young people at 23 Maurice Road, Canvey, have suffered noise, nuisance and disruption since it opened in May.Sounds awfully familiar, doesn't it?
In June, a 17-year-old living at the home admitted assaulting a police officer who had been called out to the property, while the previous month another 17-year-old was charged with criminal damage after throwing tables and chairs around inside the home.
