A warning to promoters – Noise Annoys! Marion Beresford , a 48 woman has been sentenced to 40 days in prison by Glasgow Sheriff Court for flouting an anti-social behaviour order (Asbo). Beresford was first served with the order in June 2004 after complaints about loud music blaring from her flat. She was finally taken to court in October this year and has now been sentenced. She will spend Christmas and New Year behind bars. In court, the Sheriff said that she had rendered the Asbo meaningless and the court was left with little alternative but to imprison. In a statement, the Glasgow Housing Association said it would use any legal means to ensure tenants could enjoy a peaceful life in their homes.
