The Leeds anti-social behaviour team and north west Leeds policing officers conducted two noise nuisance warrants in Headingley and Woodhouse on Tuesday.

Occupants of two addresses were found to have breached their previously issued Section 80 Noise Abatement notices by continuing to generate 'excessive' noise.

This allows the Leeds anti-social behaviour team to obtain a warrant and seize any noise-emitting items from the property.
