A teenager was kicked out of her flat for staging parties featuring the sound of vuvuzelas, the deafening horn which originated in South Africa (see pic above) and was made famous during the World Cup.

Canterbury County Court heard last week how 19 year old Toni Nicholson regularly held rowdy, drunken parties at her Ramsgate flat.

More than 40 people usually attended the shindigs which were advertised on Facebook.

Nicholson’s landlords, Town and County Housing took her to court after neighbours complained that party guests were blowing the horns “en masse”. They also complained about guests fighting in the stairwell and damage to property.

Town and Country Housing’s Errol Harris said he had tried to persuade Nicholson to  be a “good neighbour” but she continually breached an injunction to stop the parties.

Harris told the court: “We received numerous complaints about the behaviour of this young woman and the people who attended her parties.”

“Screaming, shouting, loud music, drunkenness, drugs and foul language were all common features.”

“The neighbours were terrified. Some took sleeping pills or arranged to sleep elsewhere at weekends to avoid the disturbances.

“A number of people even moved out because of this antisocial behaviour.”

Harris said evicting Nicholson was a “last resort, but for the sake of the neighbours we had no choice.”

“We tried exceptionally hard to change her ways and behave reasonably, including asking her to agree to an acceptable behaviour agreement, but she refused to do this.”

“The other residents had to put up with hell and as a responsible landlord we were not prepared to see this go on.”

One resident who didn’t want to be named said:

“The constant noise was like something I have never heard and on several nights all of them had vuvuzelas and were blowing them all night.”

“They must have thought it was funny, but it was a real year of hell living with that girl in the block.”

Nicholson made no comment about her eviction, but on her Facebook page she once wrote: “I don’t care if it’s 4am – I don’t consider it tomorrow until I wake up.”
