TWO noisy neighbours have had their loud music turned off for good after complaints from neighbours.
Irene Abdul, 20, of Riverside Gardens, Hammersmith, had her DVD player, speakers and amplifier confiscated following 22 complaints.
Noise included loud music and television, computer games, loud voices and inconsiderate behaviour from early evening through to the early morning.
Hammersmith magistrates fined Abdul £1,600, with £1,212 costs and a victim surcharge of £15, on March 12. A forfeiture order, granting the council permission to dispose of the equipment, was also granted.
Robert Scott, of Barons Court Road, was hit with a noise abatement order and fixed penalty notice last year. He continued to play loud music so council officers entered his house and removed the equipment responsible.
He was fined £1,200 and also ordered to pay costs of £980 and a £15 victim surcharge, at the same court on March 26.
Deputy leader of Hammersmith and Fulham Council, Greg Smith, said: “Decent law-abiding residents should not have to tolerate excessive, loud noise and the council will continue to come down hard on those who commit this selfish and anti-social behaviour.”
