A single mum has been slapped with a £300 fine after receiving months of noise complaints following steamy romps in her home.
Kristin Morgan, 41, of Wrexham, is now looking into whether she can get help to fund insulation in her walls.
The care worker is said to have blamed her son and his partner for the passionate sounds and has been ordered to pay £534 in costs.

She has confessed to four offences of failing to follow an abatement notice which requested that she stops the noise "created by clearly audible vocalisations relating to lovemaking and loud conversations late at night and in the early morning".
Louise Edwards, prosecuting for Wrexham County Borough Council, said the authority was first informed of noise issues in July 2020 after a loud party.
A warning letter was sent to Morgan but there were a large number of recordings by neighbours including of romps.
Miss Edwards said an enforcement officer suggested she swapped rooms with them. However, complaints continued and noise monitors were installed at the neighbouring home.
"This confirmed the loud noise from sexual activities continued and loud conversations,” the prosecutor said.
"Neighbours have suffered noise nuisance for an unacceptable period which they described as a horrendous experience which has affected their health. They no longer feel happy in their own home and feel on edge."
The offences spanned from last Boxing Day to April 4, reports NorthWales Live.
Morgan, representing herself, told the magistrates she had moved into a rundown house. She’d been trying to improve it and to save for insulation. She said they were a “normal family.”

Her pensioner dad, son aged 23 and teenage daughter lived there. “We don’t mean to be loud,” she said.
Court chairman Andrew Stubbs said they acknowledged that Morgan was a night worker and perhaps hadn’t spent a great deal of time in the house during the evenings.
But he told her: ”It’s clear to us, throughout the course of these events, you have buried your head in the sand.”
Mr Stubbs added: ”It’s clear the noise has to stop. You have to do something about it. We recognise you have taken some steps. It may be the case you might be eligible for help with insulation in terms of grants. It may help the situation.”
Her son Aled also faces four offences under the Environmental Protection Act. His case was adjourned in his absence until next month.
