    Some years ago the Kingsville City Council leased a small hall to the local youth group. Ruby, a mature student at Kingsville University, rented a house next to the hall. She was aware that the group sang songs and played musical instruments at each meeting but did not anticipate that this would be a problem.

    Recently an enthusiastic new youth leader has set up a brass band which practises for three hours during three nights, and every Saturday it plays host to visiting bands. On Sundays the band marches to church parade.

    Ruby and her son, Olly, find the noise intolerable. Ruby is unable to study when the band practises and has to leave the house on a Saturday.

    Jeremy lives on the other side of the hall to Ruby. He is also affected by the noise as it prevents him from recording bird song in his garden. Recently, he has strategically placed mirrors around his garden which reflect the sun, causing it to shine into the eyes of the band members and thus preventing them from marching.

    Consider the liabilities of the parties in private nuisance.
