Music equipment seized from Page Hall house after 'numerous' complaints and warnings
Police seized music equipment from an address in Page Hall following 'numerous' complaints and warning letters.
The warrant was executed at an address on Wade Street alongside enforcement officers from Sheffield City Council.
Police officers used the opportunity to show off their knowledge of Sheffield’s rich musical history.
A spokesperson posted on Facebook: “The noise emanating from the address would have woken a DEF LEPPARD – WHILE SHE SLEEPS, the team were SPEEDY in gaining entry, and a fine is on the HORIZON for the occupants.
"The SHERLOCKS advised The CROOKES that they will have to apply for their equipment back before it's PULPed.”
Noise pollution caused by residents playing loud music is not a new issue in Page Hall.
A huge sound system was confiscated there last summer.
Councillor Mark Jones, who represents the area, said some locals started playing music in the street when they realised speakers cannot be confiscated unless they are inside an address.
