► Waverley, 28 Sep: Police 'shut down' party
(19009) Police respond to loud party at student house in Waverley Road, in the vicinity of Rokeby Avenue, on Fri/Sat, 28/29 September 2019.
A resident has complained to both universities pending identification of the students:
"I was woken up at 12.30 with loud shouting, whooping and general noise in the street outside No.[xx], with noise also coming from the indoor party. My house is about 30 yards from No.[xx]. I endured it until about 1.15, when I went out to talk to them (in the pouring rain).
"By that time, there were 2 police officers there who told me that they had "shut it down" and that they would return the next day when the occupants were sober. I therefore did not go and talk to the students, so I don't know if they are UoB or UWE.
"I have lived here for 16 years. There are always noisy parties and outdoor gatherings in Waverley Road, particularly at the start and end of terms. It's great that the universities are now taking this anti-social behaviour seriously by paying for patrols at sensitive times.
"Thanks to the officers who attended."
Note: This was a night when Operation Beech was on duty, so those may have been the officers in attendance. I also observed this party myself, at around midnight.
