    What a pathetic fine!! And why didn't they confiscate his noise-making machinery??? Still at least he's got a record now.

      That's what I thought too! Not much of a deterrent either is it?!

        It's a total pittance to what he has put people through.

        The fines should be higher and harsher.

          That just makes me mad. I think I'm going to Ranters Corner tonight.

          But £340? Like Misty says, they should have confiscated his "noise-creators".

          While I'm on this, they should also have a banning order from him ever possessing a noise creator in the future, until he attends a "Noise Creating Management Course".

          Every neighbour who suffered as a result of his noise creation should have submitted a small claim at the same time: Loss of sleep (priceless); loss of concentration (priceless); prescription costs; cost of earplug purchase; re-imbursements for calls made/ paper used on letters.

          What do the victims get out of this? To know that the culprit has had to lay out a "small" amount of money? Gee whizz.

            I thought that victims these days were supposed to have more of a say in the sentencing of perpetrators. Or is that something i've imagined? Or is that just about theft?

            Why can't we claim for the disruption we've suffered as a result of the perpetrators of noise-creation/ ASB/ harassment etc.?

            But, haven't these perpetrators stolen something from us? Yes, of course they have. They have stolen the quiet enjoyment of our homes and our lives.

            After a bottle of HGL can do anything .
