A woman who wakes her neighbour by repeatedly flushing the lavatory at night is facing eviction from her home.Is that just when done by loonies, or does that ruling apply to the rest of us too….? Because if so, we’d all better lay off curries in future!
Mwynwen Jones, 57, has lived in her council house in Tremadog, Gwynedd, for more than 20 years but angered another resident by banging her bathroom door and pulling the chain at all hours of the night.
The High Court in London heard that Mrs Jones was guilty of nothing more than making run-of-the-mill "household noises".
But Judge John Behrens rejected her legal attempt to overturn Gwynedd County Council's moves to evict her.
"Whilst flushing a toilet may not be a nuisance, plainly it may be so if it is done repeatedly and at anti-social hours," he said.
Joking aside, wouldn’t it be quicker and cheaper for Gwynedd Council to simply soundproof the flat properly, rather than waste taxpayer’s money on these expensive court cases? It can’t be normal for simple toilet flushing to be audible in another flat…
