Pensioner gets radio Asbo
Wednesday 11 April 2012
An 87-year-old woman was given an interim anti-social behaviour order (Asbo) for playing her radio too loud and banging her walking stick on the wall.
Georgina Sims was handed the order after neighbours complained about the noise at her home in Martello Close, Gosport, Hampshire. She was initially given a noise-abatement notice by Gosport Borough Council but after she failed to comply she was given an interim Asbo in October, it was revealed yesterday. The council withdrew its application for a full Asbo when Ms Sims moved.
A council spokeswoman pointed to, "the serious effect her conduct has had over many months on the health of her immediate neighbours".
