A WOMAN who had her stereo equipment confiscated after playing loud Madonna music has been arrested twice more for breaching an Anti-Social Behaviour Order.
And neighbours of Tracey Kirby, of Cliff Street, Rishton, say they are now at their wits’ end.
Kirby, 33, appeared in court last Friday and on Tuesday this week for two separate breaches of the two-year ASBO.
The cases were adjourned until next Wednesday when she will appear before Hyndburn magistrates and she was granted unconditional bail.
Karen Lee, 28, who lives next door to the neighbour from hell, said: "We have been through a long process of going through environmental health and getting this ASBO but she’s just carrying on.
"We don’t know what else to do to get it sorted once and for all.
"We have been woken up at two and three o’clock in the morning and it’s been hard work getting my daughter Jordan up for school."
Her partner David Schofield, 33, said: "The police have been out and arrested her twice for playing loud music. They came out in the early hours of last Friday morning when she was playing rave music really loud.
"She was then arrested again on Monday. She was playing all sorts during the day and it was loud enough to hear over our television."
The Observer revealed last week that Hyndburn Council had obtained warrants and seized the stereo equipment from her home.
But Councillor Peter Clarke, deputy leader of Hyndburn Council and Cabinet member for the environment, said the order did not prevent her getting another one.
He said: "We can’t really stop her buying or borrowing more equipment though we are within our rights, if she continues, to confiscate that as well."
Kirby, who borrowed new equipment, had promised to keep the noise down.
