A young mother has been taken to court after ignoring warnings to stop having loud all-night parties.
Leanne Fennell, 20, told her neighbours a poltergeist was to blame for the thumping music and rubbish strewn in the garden.
She has now been evicted from the home in Wexford Avenue, on the Greatfield estate in east Hull.
Hull City Council prosecuted Fennell after she ignored a noise abatement notice served earlier this year.
Fennell was found guilty in her absence of four breaches of the abatement notice banning loud music and raised voices and another requiring her to remove rubbish from the garden.
A convenient and none-too-believeable excuse. The paranormal defense is getting to be a popular thing.
Blame the supernatural! Fun. After all, they are noisy ghosts.
