Woman banned from playing music for listening to Eminem too loudly

Being told you can't play music loudly anymore must be a gutting feeling, one that a 39-year-old woman from Plymouth would have experienced recently.

Natasha King has been banned from playing tunes at a volume that can be heard outside her house in Crownhill after years - 12 to be exact - pissing f her neighbours with the sounds Eminem, Stormzy and 50 Cent. A bit "rave" was heard now and then, too, according to an anonymous neighbour.

The ban will last three years and King's also been dealt with a Criminal Behaviour Order after appearing at Plymouth Magistrates' Court on January 2 and pleading guilty.

We're not against loud music, , but King kind had it coming having ignored a Community Protection Notice in April, May and June last year. You could say listening to Stormzy inspired her to get way too big for her boots.

Councillor Dave Downie Plymouth City Council said: "I welcome today's court decision and am delighted that our team have pursued this course action.

“This woman had several chances to settle this matter outside court but we were not to be deterred and we have had a good result today.

"We are not afraid to prosecute those who cause distress to others and hope that this serves as a warning - causing others misery will not be tolerated."

This story from Folkestone that had his drum 'n' bass tunes and turntables taken away from him after playing tunes "excessively loud".

We bet him and King wouldn't have agreed with the view that . Off the back that, we spoke to a bunch 37-pluses on .

Now King's unable to crank the music up at her own gaff, we wonder if she'll make the trip to Ibiza to see at Ibiza Rocks.

Eminem also raised eyebrows last year thanks to his 2000 track the same name.
