Noisy Burnley neighbour slapped with two-year ASBO
A WOMAN who made neighbours’ lives a misery with loud noise late into the night has been given an anti-social behaviour order.
Numerous complaints were made to police about Rebecca Proctor causing noise nuisance and displaying drunk and disorderly behaviour at an address in Fraser Street, Burnley.
Residents, who had been regularly losing sleep because of the noise, complained to the police and, through working with Burnley Borough Council, a two-year ASBO was secured.
Under the terms of the order, the 28-year-old, of Athletic Street, Burnley, is banned from entering part of the Queensgate area of Burnley, including Briercliffe Shopping Centre, to stop her visiting the address and causing further distress to residents.
Speaking after the ASBO was granted at Reedley Magistrates’ Court, PCSO Natalie Whittaker said: “This is an excellent result for local residents who were being kept up until all hours because of noise and excessive drinking by Rebecca Proctor.
“They had really had enough and I hope that this result will enable them to sleep without disruption.
“I hope this sends out a clear message that police and other agencies will not tolerate this type of behaviour and will take firm action against those involved in anti-social behaviour.”
Anyone who would like to report a breach of the ASBOs or acts of anti-social behaviour in their neighbourhood can contact the police on 101.
