► Hampton, 26 Oct: 'Beech called to parties'

(19032) Two residents have complained to UoB about multiple noisy parties on various dates at a student house in Hampton Road, near Aberdeen Road.

Resident 1 said, "The household seems to have an enormous sound system and a large appetite for late-night parties with large numbers of people."

He cited a series of parties during Fresher's Week (end-September) with "screaming and shouting and the loud bass" going on into the early hours. Parties continued "at least twice a week" after Freshers, despite the resident going round to complain.

Having subsequently become aware of Operation Beech, the resident texted the police for help on Friday, Oct. 25, and officers closed down that night's party. Yet the following evening, there was a further party, and the resident again called Operation Beech, with the same result.

Resident 2 said, "We have been disturbed on several occasions recently by loud thudding pile-driver type music from [xx] Hampton Road."

He received a reply from UoB indicating the students had been called to a disciplinary meeting.
