A YOUNG man has been fined for playing loud music.
James Gillson, of Roman Avenue, Mount, was ordered to pay £615 at Huddersfield Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
The 20-year-old pleaded guilty to failing to comply with an order from Kirklees Council not to play loud music.
Carol Holberry, prosecuting on behalf of the council, told the court that Gillson was prohibited from causing a nuisance by amplified music on June 28 last year.
This followed a complaint from a neighbour about the noise.
On September 10 Kirklees officials received a further complaint about loud music.
Ms Holberry said: “Officers went to the address and witnessed a breach of the order.
“The music was loud enough to have prevented sleep or study in the complainant’s home.”
Gillson was formally cautioned but chose not to answer questions.
The court also heard that Gillson is unemployed and lives with his parents.
Magistrate Caroline Ellis fined him £100 and ordered him to pay the council’s costs of £500 and a £15 victim’s surcharge.
