This is the noisy haul which made life hell for neighbours in Bedlington.
More than 20 din-creating items, including televisions, HiFi systems, loudspeakers and musical instruments were seized from a home in the Northumberland town, where residents had been making a racket day and night.
On Thursday the council’s Housing and Public Protection Service, alongside officers from the Bedlington Neighbourhood Policing Team, swooped on the house, which had a noise abatement notice served earlier this year.
But the council says the notice was “ignored”, so officers entered the property by force and removed all equipment capable of producing amplified sound.
Northumberland County Councillor John Riddle, cabinet member responsible for public protection, said: “Today’s action clearly demonstrates the Council’s commitment and determination to protect local communities from irresponsible individuals and our intention to use the full force of the law when needed.
“We will not tolerate the small minority whose anti-social behaviour affects the quality of life for the rest of the community.”
