Weightlifter fined for noisy exercise


Last Updated: 1:45am BST 03/04/2008


A weightlifter has been fined £70 for exercising too loudly.
Giran Jobe, 36, was charged with 47 breaches of a noise abatement order after neighbours complained that his two-hour training sessions with dumbbells left them unable to sleep.
A council team investigating complaints about noise from his top-floor flat in Margate, Kent, found that at times the level hit 100 decibels – as loud as a rock concert.
The 6ft 2in, 15-stone carpenter was warned by officials last summer to stop using his weights. But after just one month neighbours again complained to Thanet council, which fitted flats on lower floors with noise recorders.
In the following six months neighbours recorded 47 breaches of the noise abatement order – citing “grunting and noise from the weights hitting the floor” as the major irritants.
One of his neighbours said the noise had been “unbearable” and added: “I hope he keeps his promise and sticks to push-ups from now on.”
