THIS is the moment a council worker began smashing confiscated hi-fi equipment as part of a nationwide noise-busting drive.
The sledgehammer fell at Frizlands depot, Rainham Road North, Dagenham, during last week's Noise Action Week crackdown on "neighbours from hell".
Council bosses said that one noisy neighbour in Eldred Road, Barking, who failed to turned down the volume, ended up paying nearly �1,000 in fines and costs.
Some of the seized equipment is donated to charity, but what cannot be reused is destroyed.
