The Simmondley house at the centre of an eviction row is now sealed and shuttered.

It has remained like this since July 11 when Rekha Patel was evicted.

The windows have been sealed with metal security sheets and the front door with heavy wood to prevent anyone getting in.

The eviction was the latest outcome of a long and drawn out legal dispute with a neighbour which has seen Miss Patel unsuccessfully appeal to a civil court over a damages claim.
