A teenager has appeared in court after upsetting her neighbour by playing her music too loudly.

Georgina Hayes, of Ings Court in Thornhill, Dewsbury, pleaded guilty to failing to comply with a noise abatement notice.

Kirklees Magistrates’ Court heard that her neighbour recorded 73 incidents of loud noise coming from the 19-year-old’s flat over 43 days.

Miles Barker, prosecuting on behalf of Kirklees Council, said that the man had moved into the address in late 2014.

He’d had an issue with loud noises and amplified sound coming from Hayes’ home since.

He had spoken to Hayes but after no improvement he contacted the council’s Environmental Health officers.

Mr Barker said: “The noise was affecting his ability to rest and watch TV.

“The complainant was also prevented from having his daughter over to pay because she couldn’t sleep.”

Council officers attended at Hayes’ home and served her with a noise abatement notice.

They were forced to visit the teenager again on January 8 and urge her to reduce the bass level on her stereo.

There were further breaches of the order and Hayes was prosecuted.

District Judge Michael Fanning told Hayes: “We were all 19 once and liked our music.

“But there comes a point when thumping bass can be an irritant to other people.”

Hayes was given a two-year conditional discharge.

She still has to pay £250 costs and £15 victim surcharge.
