A NOISY neighbour has been given an Asbo for ignoring warnings about his heavy bassline music.
Simon Bailey, 39, could face prison if he fails to stick to the two-year order.
Bailey, of Leafield Avenue, Longwood, had been given a noise abatement notice in June 2006 after complaints about noisy music, Huddersfield magistrates heard yesterday.
But there were further complaints last year. Prosecutor Sarah Swarbrick said an environmental health officer visited a neighbour’s property on November 28.
“It was difficult to watch the television without turning up the volume to drown out the music,” she said.
On a further occasion an officer had to bang on Bailey’s window and door to wake him up as he slept on the settee with the music turned up.
There were other complaints about noise he made during DIY work on his house.
Forklift truck driver Bailey, who represented himself in court, admitted breaching the abatement notice.
“I’ve not done it intentionally,’’ he said.
“When I first bought the house it was a right dive. The reason the music is loud is that the hifi is downstairs and I have been working upstairs.”
As well as the antisocial behaviour order, Bailey had his sound system confiscated and was ordered to pay a £180 fine, a £15 victim surcharge and £100 court costs.
