Injunction obtained against Gateshead resident

On Thursday, 11 October Gateshead Council successfully obtained an injunction against resident Mark Steele, of Percy Gardens, Gateshead, who has been harassing, intimidating and threatening staff and councillors.

A Gateshead Council spokesperson said: "We are pleased that the court agreed with the Council that Mr Steele's threatening and intimidating behaviour towards our staff and councillors was unacceptable and made an injunction order preventing him from continuing this behaviour for two years. Any breach of this order could result in Mr Steele's arrest and imprisonment.
