A woman from Weston-super-Mare has been ordered to pay more than £2,000 after blaring loud music from her house.
Kayleigh Culliven, of Puttingthorpe Drive, appeared at North Somerset Courthouse on February 3 after North Somerset Council received numerous complaints about loud music coming from her home.
Culliven, aged 22, was visited by the council’s environmental officers on three occasions where she was issued with a warning letter and two notices, which required her to turn down the music within 10 minutes.
The council also visited two houses close by where residents had complained about the noise, where officers confirmed they could hear the music clearly.
Following more objections, the council obtained a warrant and seized a number of TVs, speakers, amplifiers, a PlayStation and a Nintendo Wii.

Councillor Peter Bryant said: “Continuous noise can have a really obstructive effect on people’s lives.
“Kayleigh Culliven failed to heed the notice we served on her and she will now pay heavily for her actions and antisocial behaviour.”
