Speakers taken from noisy neighbour
8:00pm Friday 2nd November 2012 in News
POLICE and council officers swooped in on a nightmare neighbour after he subjected residents to months of torture by playing loud music into the early hours of the morning.
They seized seven speakers, including two 250 watt speakers, a wide screen TV, a video player, a stereo, a Playstation III and a desktop computer.
The items will be stored by Colchester Council for 78 days, while a decision is taken on whether to prosecute Lee, who was served with a noise abatement notice in August.
Neighbour Simone Cheverst, 43, who has been complaining about Lee’s behaviour since January said: “It has been like living in hell on Earth. It’s been like living under the devil himself.
“I haven’t slept properly since January. It has been no way to live.”
