Two men who allowed cracksmoking prostitutes into their retirement home were served with court orders yesterday banning them from associating with call girls.
Derek Paris, aged 67, and 64-year-old Elmo Worrell were served with anti-social behaviour orders (Asbos) at Birmingham Magistrates' Court following a string of complaints from residents at Edgwood Court, in Bellis Street, Edgbaston.
The pair were previously served with interim anti-social behaviour orders preventing them from having contact with the girls, who were discovered at the secure retirement block by officers.
Paris, who is divorced, moved into the flats last May and has since moved out.
His interim order also banned him from using a chip pan as he frequently set fire to the building. He was served with a four-year Asbo.
Worrell, who is single, has lived at the housing scheme for three years and was served with a three-year Asbo.
Councillor Deirdre Alden (Con Edgbaston) told the court as she had received scores of complaints. She said after the hearing: "I am absolutely delighted because these men caused so much misery to people who should have been enjoying their retirement.
"They have also been enticing prostitutes back to the area after we have been doing so much work to get rid of them."
