Hanging would have been too good for him

A Wham! fan tortured neighbours by blasting out their hit Last Christmas all night. Brian Turner repeatedly played the song at full volume from 1am until 4am one night in May this year. However, he has now been silenced after becoming the first noise nuisance to be prosecuted by Newcastle city council's night watch team. Magistrates fined Turner, from Newcastle upon Tyne, £200 and ordered him to pay £215 in costs.
