A MAN from West Thurrock has had his music equipment seized and has been ordered to pay more than £1,200 for repeatedly disturbing his neighbours with late-night DJ and karaoke sessions.

James Brown, 53, of St Clements Avenue, was found guilty for a second time at Basildon Magistrates Court for continuing to breach two noise abatement notices issued by Thurrock Council.

Brown, who failed to appear in court, was ordered to pay a £200 fine, £80 victim surcharge and £1,000 costs.

After receiving numerous complaints about late-night loud music, DJ'ing and karaoke sessions, the council's Environmental Protection Team served noise abatement notices to Brown under section 80 of the Environmental Protection Act in February 2022.

Recent court action was taken after he continued to breach both orders.

Residents experiencing noise nuisance can report noise complaints online.
