Woman evicted after paramedics attend neighbour made seriously ill by noise

June 13 2017 | Articles | News

A woman has been evicted from her home after terrorising her neighbours with so much noise that, on one occasion, paramedics had to be called out.

The sound from Angela Worsley’s flat was so loud that an ambulance had to come to the aid of a neighbour recovering from brain surgery. The neighbour, who’s housebound and missing part of her skull, was made violently ill from the volume, which caused her floors and walls to vibrate.

Life threatening

In a statement to Manchester County Court, her partner said that her condition “is life threatening in itself and the music and noise leaves her in agony”.

The 48-year-old was originally given a one-year Suspended Possession Order from the court, following repeated incidents of loud music, parties, fighting and swearing heard coming from her first-floor cottage flat well into the early hours of the morning.

Worsley continued to break the order, leading to her eviction this month from the property on Shakleton Avenue in Blackley.

Incident diaries and statements

Mike Stevens, Northwards’ director of neighbourhood services, said: “With help from her neighbours keeping incident diaries and providing statements, we were able to put together a strong case against Worsley and remove her from the property.

“It’s rewarding that we’ve been able to restore some peace and quiet back to the block and her neighbours’ lives.

“If you report anti-social behaviour to us, we will do everything in our power to stop it.”
