ASBO woman cuffed over raucous rumpy-pumpy

Flouted 'excessive noise' ban, and then some

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

A Tyne and Wear woman was yesterday remanded in custody for allegedly breaking an ASBO which required her not to annoy the neighbours by indulging in vociferous romps with her husband, the Telegraph reports.

Caroline Cartwright, 48, of Washington, was hauled before magistrates on 17 April for five breaches of an previous noise abatement notice, fined a total of £515 and slapped with said ASBO ordering her to desist from "making excessive noise, knocking, shouting, screaming or vocalisation that can be heard in neighbouring properties or outside the house".

This evidently didn't do the trick, because Cartwright was arrested on 18, 22 and 26 April after neighbours complained she and hubby Steve were pumping out "early morning noises".

Magistrates yesterday took a very dim view indeed of Cartwright's decibel-generating capacity, and refused her bail on three counts of breaching the ASBO. She pleaded not guilty to the charges, and elected for trial by jury. She will appear again via video link* before Sunderland Magistrates' Court on 5 May pending an eventual trial at Newcastle Crown Court at a later date. ®
