A Norfolk man has been given an anti-social behaviour order - for slamming doors too loudly.

If Paul Henney, of Louise Close in Yarmouth, shuts one more door with too much force he now faces a prison sentence. He was appearing before magistrates for a private prosecution by Yarmouth Borough Council.

Council solicitor Chris Skinner told the court that problems had started in the block of flats on Louise Close when Henney (pictured), moved in with his partner.

“There were a lot of problems in the first few months with banging noises, shouting, swearing, playing loud music and all manner of things.”

Initially the interim Asbo being sought stopped Henney from returning to the property but Mr Skinner said that because his recent behaviour had been better, the council was willing to impose less harsh conditions.

Instead Henney has been banned from banging doors or from talking to one downstairs neighbour.

Defending, Christopher Bowles, said he would not oppose the new conditions.

“My client doesn't want to create any waves with his neighbour,” he said.
