A Wembley man who kept his neighbours awake by playing folk music loudly around the clock has been fined more than £1,000.

Bogdan Estrate of Alliance Close was taken to court by Brent Council after it received 11 complaints about from fed-up residents.

Willesden Magistrates’ Court heard it was impossible for his neighbours to get any sleep due to his actions.

Estrate was fined £1,070.

Cllr James Denselow, Brent Council’s cabinet member for stronger communities, said: “The vast majority of residents ‘Love where they live’ and are mindful of their neighbours, including not playing music too loud.

“But there remain a small minority of noisy neighbours whose selfish and thoughtless actions are making people’s lives a misery.

“We will not tolerate such behaviour. Noisy neighbours can cause a host of problems, including sleep deprivation, which is unhealthy and can cause issues at home and work.”
