Woman evicted after blaming poltergeist for party noises Woman evicted after blaming poltergeist for party noises

A woman has been evicted from her social home in Aylesbury after a series of anti-social behaviour incidents committed by her and her partner.

Landlord Sovereign Housing Association evicted Claire Williams from her home in Poole Close after Milton Keynes County Court granted a possession order last December.

Williams, 33, lived at the property with her partner, Claire Muszalik, 35. The pair had previously received an ASBO when they lived in High Wycombe.

Problems began in late 2011, when neighbours were regularly disturbed by shouting and banging in the middle of the night.

Sovereign arranged for support to be given to Williams and asked her to sign an acceptable behaviour contract, after which the situation improved.

However, in October 2012, the two women were involved in a fight with their neighbour and her boyfriend. The police were called and Williams and Muszalik were both arrested.

The ASB continued and the police were often called on to attend the property.

“Life became intolerable for their neighbours. Several of them sensibly kept records of the disturbances and nuisance behaviour, and this was invaluable in our attempts to take action against Claire Williams,” said Sovereign housing officer Steve Kilsby.

“At Sovereign, we are determined to tackle anti-social behaviour and build communities where people feel safe. I’d like to commend our residents for their bravery in coming forward with the evidence that allowed us to remove her from this area.”
