Jude Law’s party sparks noise complaints

Jude Law was reprimanded by U.K. local government officials after a loud party hosted by the British actor enraged several of his neighbours.
The Holiday star reportedly held a birthday party for girlfriend Dr Philippa Coan at his house in Highgate, north London which continued into the early hours of Sunday (21Feb16) morning.
However, some residents were angered by the volume at which a live band was playing, and called police.
One disgruntled neighbour tells the London Evening Standard newspaper, “It was really awful, it woke me up all night. It was going on until around 5am. It was like jazz or something, but there was a real band playing, not just music.”
Another resident took issue not just with noise levels, but with the actor’s music taste, saying, “It woke me up. I think a lot of people heard it. There are a lot of people here who are successful people and they like to have parties. It was not very good music.”
After receiving the noise complaint, police officers passed the matter on to workers at Jude’s local authority, Camden council.
“Police were called at 1.55am on Sunday to a report of anti-social behaviour – loud noise,” a police spokesperson tells the publication. “The caller was advised that it was a matter for the council and environmental health department.”
Officials at the council confirmed to the paper that members of their noise protection team had paid a visit to the Hollywood star’s house, ordering him to lower the music’s volume, and they remained there for 40 minutes to ensure the request was carried out.
The party took place just hours before Jude travelled to Calais, France on Sunday to visit refugees housed at the town’s migrant camp, also known as “The Jungle”, where he called on U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron to help those housed there.
