Have your say

A NOISY neighbour who made residents’ lives a misery has been slapped with an anti-social behaviour order (ASBO).

Mark Eagles’ neighbours on Regent Road, central Blackpool, filed complaints about him to both the police and the council after they were repeatedly disturbed by visitors to the 36-year-old’s flat.

And now Eagles has been handed a two-year ASBO by Blackpool Magistrates’ Court in a bid to improve the situation.

At the court yesterday, prosecutor Catherine Wormleighton said Eagles had been made the subject of an interim order last month, and since then had made efforts to improve things.

Granting the ASBO, which was applied for by Blackpool Council, District Judge Jeff Brailsford said: “It is good to know efforts are being made.

“It must have been pretty awful for your neighbours.”

This new order bans Eagles from having more than three visitors, prevents anyone in the flat from being under the influence of drink or drugs and bans noise nuisance from TVs or stereos which could affect neighbours.

It is also states there must be no noise nuisance from neighbours or depositing of rubbish in communal areas.
