A NORTH Berwick resident who was banned from playing loud music at his home after being handed an anti-social behaviour order (ASBO) has appeared back in the dock at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.

Jonathan Omond was given the ASBO at Edinburgh Sheriff Court in September last year following complaints from neighbours about the excessive noise coming from his property.

Omond was told he could not play any hi-fi equipment, TV, computer or any musical instruments at an excessive volume that would cause distress to his neighbours at his home on the town’s Lochbridge Road.

But 46-year-old Omond breached the order by blasting music from his hi-fi at an excessive volume just four weeks after being handed the ASBO.

He appeared at the Capital court last Monday and admitted breaching the court-imposed order on October 6 last year.

Sheriff Peter McCormack deferred sentence to October 27 for social work reports to be carried out.
