Fined for playing gospel music too loudly

A RELIGIOUS music fan has been fined for playing her gospel favourites too loudly.

Perpetual Miles was served with a noise abatement notice for creating a nuisance to her neighbours.

But when Miles ignored the warnings she was prosecuted by North Somerset Council and pleaded guilty to failing to comply with an abatement notice.

Council officers first visited the 52-year-old carer’s property in Walliscote Grove Road in November.

She was served with the noise abatement notice in December but days later neighbours called the council late at night to complain about the gospel music coming from her property.

An environmental health officer visited the Weston property at 12.30am and when he parked 30 metres from it he could hear the music, mixed with talking.

Miles had attended court on Tuesday, but could not wait for the hearing because of work commitments.
