This video shows the loud music residents living in a street off Newland Avenue are being subjected to in the early hours by nuisance neighbours.

The footage shows loud music blaring out into Torrington Street from a nearby house early on Sunday morning, and those living close by say nothing is being done about it.

Tom, a resident who filmed it, said: “I don’t know when the music started but it woke me up at 4.40am.

“I rang 101 and they told me it was a council issue, but the council aren’t open until Wednesday because it’s a Bank Holiday.

“At 6am the police did actually turn up and the music was turned off, but that didn’t last long at it has been blaring out again since about lunchtime.

“This has happened a couple of times now, and it’s a becoming a joke.”

Tom says he lives at the other end of the street but says the music is so loud it sounds like it is being played right next to him.

“I feel sorry for the direct neighbours because I’m at the other end and it was unbearable,” he said.

“I work Monday to Friday, so luckily I didn’t have work to go to work that day, but there are plenty of people down here who work shifts and have small children.

“I have lived down here for five years and never had any problems - it's quite a recent thing.

"It’s not students because they’re not back from summer holidays yet, so I’ve got no idea who thinks it’s a good idea to be waking people up with the noise.

“God knows what music it is but it’s the same all the time.”

The video was posted onto a Facebook page dedicated to Newland Avenue, where it appears other residents have also been awoken and disturbed by the loud music.

Antisocial behaviour increasing

One woman said: “We were woken by this at 3.30am and kept awake until it got turned off at 6.10am.

“They’ve been playing it in the afternoon/evening for the past few days, too, and it is usually accompanied by a lot of shouting.

“We called the council out of hours service and were told to call on Tuesday instead to help them build a picture of the nuisance.”

According to the Hull City Council website, antisocial behaviour can be reported as a misuse of public space, intimidation and harassment, criminal activity, noise nuisance, graffiti and vandalism.

Advice on the website says: "We provide a first response within two working days, which is usually in the form of a telephone call. We discuss the issue with you and agree a course of action. Our enforcement officer responsible for your case takes appropriate action and updates you regularly on the progress, if you have provided your details.

"Keep a log of any further related incidents, including dates and times, to add to your case and help with our investigations."

Residents are now saying they want something done about the noise.

“I just want them to stop”, said Tom. “I want them to get some common sense and stop waking everybody up at stupid o’clock.

“It’s not fair on everyone else down here.”
