A noisy neighbour in Bromley has been fined thousands of pounds after repeatedly blasting out her music.

Emma Vale, of Rangefield Road, has to pay £1,800, a £180 victim surcharge and more than £1,200 to Bromley Council.

The council’s public protection division prosecuted Vale for a second time following complaints of “very loud music” from residents.

She had previously failed to show up at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on April 9 and failed to respond to the council’s allegations of “noise nuisance” – despite being witnessed leaving her property by the authorities earlier this year.

Miss Vale was served an abatement notice in December 2012, but is said to have continued to ignore warnings to turn the volume down.

She was convicted of causing a noise nuisance in August last year when she was fined £900 and had to fork out £1,464 in cost.

The council also seized equipment at the time using a court warrant.

Head of environmental protection Jim McGowan said: "People who blatantly persist in causing a noise nuisance will be prosecuted.

“These individuals have no regard for their neighbours and seem determined to ignore our warnings. “This thoughtless behaviour will not be tolerated in Bromley."
