A woman infuriated her neighbours by playing a TV theme tune for three years.

Amanda Millard's neighbours got so fed up of hearing the music from 1960s cartoon The Banana Splits that they called in environmental health officials.

Brighton and Hove City Council noise patrol officers also recorded Millard playing The Animals's House of the Rising Sun and Bob Marley's Buffalo Soldier at full volume from her flat at Pope's Court, Freehold Terrace, Brighton.

Despite warning letters and an abatement notice, Millard refused to turn the volume down.

Brighton Magistrates' Court fined Millard £250 for breaching the noise abatement notice on Friday.

Councillor Geoffrey Theobald, cabinet member for environment, said: "The neighbours of Ms Millard have clearly been subjected to unacceptable levels of noise for a long period of time which has had a serious effect on their quality of life and wellbeing.

"This sends out a clear message that this council will not tolerate noise nuisance will prosecute those responsible."
