A Kent man who made his neighbours' lives a misery by repeatedly blasting out power ballads - by the likes of Celine Dion (pictured), Chris de Burgh and Robbie Williams - has had his stereo confiscated by council officials.
Mark Sigston, 31, appeared in court yesterday, following a string of complaints from neighbours, the Daily Telegraph reports.
Despite repeated visits from Environmental Protection officers earlier in the year, Sigston had failed to keep the noise down and continued to crank up tunes such as All By Myself, The Lady In Red and The Greatest Love Of All.
He initially had his stereo equipment confiscated in May, but council officials were obliged to return it by July. However, having continued to ignore the noise abatement order, Sigston has now had his CD players, mixers, amplifier and speakers taken away for good. He also received a conditional discharge for 12 months.
Now, we like a power ballad as much as the next run-of-the-mill music fan - but there are limits.
So will he shut up and stop holding noisy parties now? It's hard to be sure. Sometimes he feels so insecure. And love so distant and obscure remains the cure... Altogether now!
Right, let's move on and have a look at some amusing mugshots, shall we?
