21 August 2014 Last updated at 21:17 BST

Legal action is being taken by council officials to prevent raucous house parties at luxury rented homes in a seaside town.

Residents have called for an end to the "alcohol-fuelled" hen, stag and birthday parties in Poole, Dorset.

The council said it had "tremendous sympathy" for the residents affected.

Complaints refer to properties in areas such as Canford Cliffs and Sandbanks that have been rented out by groups of 30 or more people.
