London - A British woman who kept her neighbours awake by engaging in enthusiastic love-making was sentenced to two weeks in prison on Monday after a neighbour complained about her "screaming and shouting".

The court ruling stated that at around 05:00 on January 29 2015 "the defendant [Gemma Wale] was guilty of screaming and shouting whilst having sex at a level of noise which caused nuisance or annoyance".

The woman's neighbour in a social housing complex in Birmingham in central England, who was woken up by the sounds, added: "It lasted 10 minutes."

The woman's boyfriend, Wayne, received no punishment.

A former neighbour was quoted by the Birmingham Mail as saying: "There were men going in and out of her flat all the time. Then she would sleep all day. It was the worst two years of my life."

The ruling also found her guilty of "banging around the house", "running around in the property", having loud arguments with her boyfriend, playing loud music, swearing and slamming doors.

Such behaviour was judged in breach of her anti-social behaviour order, a legal sanction used for repeat offenders of low-level incidents that do not warrant full criminal prosecution.

The sentence was two weeks in prison for each of the breaches to her so-called Asbo, to be served concurrently.
