Court orders closure of mums’ crack den homes
TWO more people have been booted out of their homes after a judge decided they were crack dens.
Young mum Dionne Kalebaina, who is in her twenties and has a small child, was forced to leave 63 Powell Road, Laindon.

Both mothers were forced to leave their rented homes after district judge Kevin Gray, sitting at Southend Magistrates’ Court, granted an application by police to close both properties using crack house closure orders.
