North Tyneside MBC has failed in its bid to jail an unruly tenant, as part of its crack down on nuisance neighbours.

The Journal reported (24 April, p1) that the council applied for a young single mother to be jailed for breaching an undertaking that neither she nor her family would annoy other residents.

At Newcastle crown court, Judge Esmond Faulks said he had no evidence that the woman had been responsible for disturbances outside her home, despite allegations that she had breached the undertaking 36 times. He praised the authority's policy on unruly tenants.
