Couple Hit With Noise Warning After Neighbours Complain About Sex 'Louder Than A Lawnmower'
| Last updated
Lydia Barker, 31, and Billy Brown, 40, will now need to be monitored by their social housing provider after neighbours filed the complaint. Talk about a mood killer...
The Somerset-based pair received a letter nobody would ever want to receive from Stonewater, a housing association, which stated: 'You and your partner can be heard having sexual relations', explaining that nearby inhabitants were 'embarrassed and distressed' from the noise.
The letter read: “Dear Ms Barker, We have received a complaint against you concerning noise from your home. The nature of the noise is a very delicate matter but I must bring it your attention.
“We have been informed that you and your partner can be heard having sexual relations by other neighbours. In turn, they have reported this to us, as they find it to be embarrassing and distressing.”
The letter went on to add: “Please can you address this matter and reduce the noise when engaging in sexual relations as this is affecting other residents. We will monitor this matter for improvement.
“If we feel there has not been any marked improvement, then Stonewater will contact you again advising you of the action we prepared to take in order to resolve this matter. If you do have any questions, then please get into contact.”
The mum-of-one previously told the Sun that despite 'never' having any noise complaints before, the couple does enjoy 'morning, noon and night' sex... which clearly doesn't come as a shock to their neighbours!
She told the publication: “It's not as if I'm a screamer. I've never had any noise issues before.
“I'd not call my sex sessions extreme... a few moans and groans, of course. We're doing it morning, noon and night, but not anti-social hours.”
Lydia found the official complaint 'very extreme', and would have sympathised if her neighbours simply knocked and asked them to keep the noise down or 'stuck a polite note the door'.
Meanwhile, her partner jokingly added: “The neighbours only have to put up with it for two minutes. What are they complaining about?”
The housing association, which look after 34,500 homes in England, has since stated they want to help all parties to live 'amicably'.
The organisation said in a statement: “On reflection, the letter we sent to Ms Barker about what is a very delicate matter does not meet our usual high standards and we hope that it hasn't caused any embarrassment or distress.
“We will continue to work with both Ms Barker and her neighbours to help them live alongside each other amicably while respecting each others' boundaries.”
