Re: Noise in Lower Syd last night

The anti-social behaviour in the early hours was from the Hazel Grove estate and the music stopped at 3.15am followed by the noise of people leaving the party. I have raised a complaint with the police as the 101 number was not answered and asked Lewisham Homes to look at these neighbour disturbances.
