Leeds City Council has become the first local authority to invoke new powers under the 1996 Housing Act to deal with allegations of serious anti-social behaviour, The Daily Telegraph (p10) reports. It was claimed that a council tenant had staged a hate campaign against his elderly neighbour, and driven out three previous tenants of the 71-year-old's flat on a council estate in a West Yorkshire suburb. A judge granted the first 'injunction with power of arrest' at Leeds county court after a detailed dossier of the man's activities was produced.
