A council tenant has been evicted from his flat at a towerblock in Ramsgate for throwing objects from the windows and balcony of his flat.

Thanet District Council took the action against Daniel Theobold (20) from Kennedy House, Newcastle Hill, Ramsgate, who became a council tenant in December 2008.

The council worked closely with local residents to get the evidence needed and applied for a possession order for his flat, because of the seriousness of the anti-social behaviour and the potential risk to other people.

Sarah Warner, Senior Housing Officer, said: "This case sends out a strong message that the council simply will not tolerate anti-social behaviour by its tenants. This sort of behaviour not only causes great distress to those living in the vicinity, but could potentially injure or kill someone, when items are being thrown from windows and balconies. That's not something that our tenants should have to put up with and that's why we've taken action to put an end to this problem."
