Furious residents in a leafy London suburb say their lives have been made a 'misery' by back-to-back weekends of music festivals.

Residents in family-filled Beckenham say they have been forced to endure loud music, anti-social behaviour and festival-goers urinating on their gardens after spilling out from events at Beckenham Place Park.

One resident even claimed their house was 'shaking' due to the booming sound coming from the most recent event - Hospitality Weekend in the Woods - a two-day drum and bass festival on Saturday and Sunday.

The event followed on from a one-day reggae festival - City Splash - which was held the previous Saturday. 

Furious residents say their festival 'nightmare' was made even worse because the park is split between two councils - making it harder to lodge complaints.

Residents in Beckenham say they were unable to make complaints to Lewisham Borough Council - who approved the festivals - because they live in the neighbouring borough of Bromley.

One told MailOnline: 'Lewisham are responsible for the events, but it is Bromley residents who are suffering with the anti-social behaviour, huge amounts of rubbish, people p*****g in our front gardens. And Bromley say there is nothing they can do.'

Another, taking to Twitter to complain, said: 'I have tried to comment to Lewisham Council but as we live in the Bromley Council area they won't accept it.'

On Twitter user added: 'It was so annoying last weekend when Bromley said "not our problem phone Lewisham" and Lewisham said "we don't have noise officers, post something via the website".

'But the website only allows Lewisham residents to post... ridiculous.' 

Others took to Twitter to complain about noise levels at the most recent festival, Hospitality Weekend in the Woods.

The two-day drum and bass event featured headliners such as English DJ Metrik and Belgian producer Netsky. 

One Twitter user wrote: 'Five AM start, and live the other side of Beckenham but have drum and bass so loud it might as well be next door. Bloody awful.'

Another, Anna-Lane Godhead, wrote: 'It's so loud! My house is shaking and the cat's hiding under the bed.' 

One Twitter user mentioned about noise coming from Beckenham Place Park on both weekends, including the previous weekend when it hosted City Splash.
