* Chandos, 17 July: '2am chorus on street'

(S043) Group of people, presumed to be students, creating noise on the street in Chandos Road in the early hours of 17 July 2020.

A resident has complained to UoB: "At around 2.00am, from what sounded like somewhere on Chandos Road, a chorus was chanted at full volume by what must be a large gang of students. I dragged myself out to see what was going on, but as I approached Chandos Road I could see students running around with drinks in hand. Given the Covid pandemic, and the complete indifference to social distancing that students have displayed, I abandoned the search. .... It’s becoming increasingly obvious that at night there are some students who will not control their behaviour."
