TWO men practicing their DJing skills in woodland prompted members of the public to complain to the police about the noise.

The music enthusiasts had spent the night refining their DJing skills in Goring Greensward armed with a generator, speakers, laptop and USB control deck.

A police spokesman said: “We received a number of complaints from members of the public about loud music being played on Goring Greensward this morning.

“Officers went to the scene and spoke to two men who were practising DJing. They agreed to turn off the bass speakers to reduce the amount of noise they were making.”

One of the budding DJS, 23-year-old ‘Cakes’, said he was ‘the nicest person’ and did not want to cause a commotion.

His fellow DJ, who wished to remain anonymous, added that the wood was a good spot and, if asked, he would turn the music down or off.

The pair turned up in the wood late on Sunday evening and stayed through the night.

Dog-walker Peter, 53, said: “You could hear it from some distance before you got there, it was really loud and ridiculous for this time of morning.

“I saw some elderly dog-walkers hanging around looking worried. They were all talking about it, one who spoke to me was very distressed and said she had been kept up all night by it. It was unbelievable the volume, it makes dogs tense and worried hearing this thumping noise.”
