Hull City Council has made an example of a local woman who kept neighbours awake with her excessive noise.

City magistrates fined Suzanne Taylor a total of £800 – £200 for each offence – following the prosecution, which was brought by the local authority.

Taylor, of Dayton Road, admitted breaking the terms of the noise abatement order served on her on four different occasions from May 7 to August 19 last year.

The authority’s public protection squad looked into a noise complaint and found she had been causing disturbances that kept neighbours awake.

It issued various written warnings to her and served abatement orders on February 19 and May 29 last year.

John Hewitt, a city councillor whose responsibilities include communities and neighbourhoods, said the local authority needs to protect householders from this kind of behaviour.

Cllr Hewitt urged all residents to stay conscious of the impact that their noise levels may have on neighbours.

Taylor was also told to pay £1,334.51 costs plus a £20 victim surcharge.
