Woman Blamed Party Noises On Ghost

HULL, England, (UPI) — Neighbors of a British woman who was evicted for ignoring a noise abatement order said she claimed the constant party sounds were caused by a “poltergeist.”
Leanne Fennell, 20, who was evicted from her Hull, England, home and ordered to pay $586.86 in fines and $793 in legal costs to the Hull City Council, told neighbors who complained about the late-night loud music that a party-loving specter was behind the noise, The Sun reported Monday.
“She told us a poltergeist would keep switching the music on really loud when she was in bed,” said a neighbor who asked not to be named. “Some of the neighbors had a terrible time. There were always bottles and bottles of wine and cider just chucked in the garden.”
“She had at least four huge bonfires to burn some of the rubbish that was in there,” the neighbor said. “Some people complained and then she was warned by the council, but she didn’t listen. Eventually, it went too far and we’d had enough.”
Hull Magistrates’ Court found Fennell guilty of four breaches of the noise abatement notice and failing to abide by another notice ordering her to remove the trash from her garden.
