A Harlesden grocery store has been closed by police for ongoing criminality.
Lloyds Groceries, in Craven Park Road, is forbidden to reopen until at least September says the notice.
@MPS Harlesden said in a tweet that it had closed the store “for ongoing ASB [antisocial behaviour] and Criminal Activity in the Harlesden area”.
“LLOYDS will remain closed until 02/09/2020 signed by Willesden Magistrates Court,” the tweet said. “This is part of a joint operation to tackle ASB in Harlesden. #closure.”
