Tales From Planet Rock: Wham! fan fined for early Christmas
A Wham! fan has been fined for playing their song ’Last Christmas’ - repeatedly.

Brian Turner played the song at full volume from 1am onwards one night in May this year.

He is the first noise nuisance case to be prosecuted by Newcastle city council night watch team.

Turner was fined for £200 and ordered to play £215 costs.

Magistrates in Gosforth were told that he was visiting friends a nearby flat in the suburb of Walker on May 15 when he began playing the song to the annoyance of the residents.

He played ’Last Christmas’ relentlessly from 1am to 4am.

Finally a neighbour snapped and called in the council noise squad, who eventually gave residents some peace by seizing the stereo, reports The Daily Telegraph.
