A 26-year-old who played his music too loudly at a block of flats has been fined £200.
Alexander Lloyd-Wickens, of Clifton Street, Norwich pleaded guilty to failing to comply with an abatement notice served by Norwich City Council, when he appeared before magistrates on Tuesday, February 18.
The court heard that on July 6 last year the amplified music, shouting, banging and tapping coming from the flat, caused a nuisance to residents.
Prosecutor David Lowens said the defendant was a tenant in a block of flats and that the excessive noise caused significant problems to neighbours.
In mitigation, James Burrows said his client accepted he played music too loudly. He said he was in rent arrears, and had mental health issues.
