Wigan justices heard that despite being served with a noise abatement notice for playing music at anti-socially loud levels, Sophie McCarthy continued to ramp the volume up at home in Withington Lane, Aspull, twice on Christmas Eve, once on Boxing Day and again the day after. The £1,569.50 bill comprises four £220 fines plus costs and a victim surcharge.
