► Collingwood, Jun 25: 'They just ignored me'

Updated: Sep 18, 2020

(19087) A resident has complained to UoB about noise after midnight in Collingwood Road caused by students congregating in the street or on the front steps of a house.

He said: "Tonight at around midnight there was street noise in Collingwood Road as a large group of UoB students returned to x Collingwood Road. It was a mixed group of around a dozen shouting loudly. ...

"They mostly went inside but a number decided to sit on the front steps smoking and talking loudly. After twenty minutes I shouted out for them to be quiet which they did for around 5 mins but then resumed. I again shouted out and they just ignored me.

"It’s now 1am and they are still at it. Another disturbed night's sleep courtesy of lockdown-breaching, anti-social UoB students. I’m really looking forward to getting up at 6am to go to work."
