A TENANT has been evicted from her flat in Patchway after making the lives of her neighbours a misery.

Zoe Gullick, 22, had to leave her Merlin Housing Society home in Willow Way after reports were received of drug taking, verbal abuse and physical threats towards her neighbours from Ms Gullick and visitors to her flat.

She had also built up more than £800 in arrears.

Merlin went to Bristol County Court to secure an eviction order.

Kathryn Perks, Merlin's neighbourhood housing manager, said: “We’re pleased that we’ve been able to regain possession of this flat from this woman who was causing so much trouble.

!Her neighbours have been very supportive of our efforts throughout and were willing to provide us with statements. I would like to thank them for this.

“We’re committed to tackling anti-social behaviour in the community by working with residents and our partner organisations. Hopefully this eviction will send a message that we will not tolerate anti-social behaviour from our residents and will take action when it is reported.”
