Neighbour evicted for loud music; Order to stop noise ignored by tenant.

Byline: By Jane Stirland

A 51-YEAR-OLD man has been evicted from his Coventry home after ignoring an order to stop his nuisance behaviour.

Neighbours complained that Jack Kybird, of Longfield House, Bell Green Road, Bell Green, played music and hammered late at night.

Mr Kybird was given a final chance to change his ways last year under groundbreaking new powers.

Coventry County Court handed him one of the city's first demotion orders on September 20, 2006, meaning he could keep his Whitefriars Housing Group home as long as he amended his behaviour.

Antisocial behaviour logged by his neighbours in diary sheets included playing music at unsociable hours and hammering late at night.

However, despite the final warning, the problems continued and his landlord, Whitefriars, was forced to head back to court to secure the eviction. Mr Kybird left the property this week.

Gail Cooper, of the asb4 team at Whitefriars, said: "It is very disappointing that Mr Kybird forced us to take this action. Eviction is always a last resort but for the benefit of his neighbours it became the only option available to us."

Residents affected by antisocial behaviour should call Whitefriars on 024 7649 6747.

Whitefriars Housing Group is a not-for-profit housing and regeneration organisation that owns and manages around 17,000 homes across Coventry.
