A Reading busker who was told that her music was causing noise pollution has gone viral on Tik Tok.

The 20 year old singer/songwriter, Katrina Tomsatt, caught the footage on her phone after a shopper stopped her and a friend while they were performing.

The woman who approached the pair in the TikTok video said: “Do you realise you can be heard over the other side of the bridge and right the way up there.”

Katrina quickly apologised by saying; “We understand , we understand” however ‘Karen’ continued saying ‘you don’t’.

The Reading singer then said, "you could ask us in a polite way, we are trying our best."

The disgruntled woman added: “I’m sorry I get cheesed off when I can’t come into town without being inflicted with noise pollution.

Other shoppers came to her rescue, applauding their performance in Reading town centre.

One man said: “Carry on. Don’t worry about some crusty old bird, I’m probably older than her and I don’t mind.”

Another passer-by came to her defence saying that she ‘thought that they were amazing’.
