Cambridge City Council has been flooded with complains this week following excessive noise from the Hughes Hall May Ball.


The celebrations, which marks the end of exams for local students, kept residents in the area awake until the early hours of Sunday morning.


One local resident outlined that whilst they had been assured that noise levels would be monitored throughout the event, it was clear this had not taken place and blamed the authorities decision to hand over the running of the Ball to the students themselves as the main cause.


Celebrations continued yesterday at the Wyverns summer garden party at Anstey Hall with tight security on hand to ensure the grounds of the 17th century manor house were kept safe.


Trinity College, who hold their lavish May Ball today alongside the Clare College Ball, outlined that City Council officers will be on hand throughout the event to monitor sound levels and they will be working closely with the authorities to ensure the celebrations do not disturb local residents.
