■ Note to readers: 2017-18 incidents

If you are viewing a listing of 2017-18 incidents, please bear in mind the comments I've made elsewhere: The students who were involved in these incidents have probably moved on, and are no longer at the properties mentioned. It follows that the current occupants are not to blame for what happened there previously, and should not be treated negatively. I retain these incidents in the record because they are not completely "closed"—if there are further incidents at a property in a new academic year, with a different student household involved, then we have to question whether the property is being adequately managed, as required by the regulations applying to HMOs (Houses of Multiple Occupati

Most of the parties were modest affairs compared with the events that took place in March. However, one resident was woken in the early hours of 2 June by beat music. She and her partner went out at 3-30am to investigate and found the source to be a house in Lansdown Road: "Windows open, professional looking music deck in basement and a house full of partying students."
