Ms. Proham said, “Over 100 people showed up at the house, some I didn't even know. My house is trashed and things have been taken.
“Of course I'm sorry, but it really wasn't in my hand. I never planned that so many people would show up.
The police came and said we had an hour to close the party. You said people were throwing rockets, but they weren't.
"The police came back after an hour and by that time the party was over."
During the hearing, the Greater Manchester Police Department ordered the premises to be subject to a closure order.
The order means that no one except the resident is allowed to enter the property.
When asked if she had a problem with it, Ms. Proham told the court: "I am taking care of my mother, who has dementia, she lives in Hulme."
However, District Judge Mark Hadfield said, "You can visit them instead of having them come all the way to your home address in Gorton."
Mrs. Proham replied: "I think so."
Judge Hadfield said: “As a result of a gathering on August 15th, members of the public, including your neighbors, were seriously molested and severely disrupted as an incident occurred outside your property. So I think there are reasons for this order. I am making the order against you.
During a hearing, Ms. Proham said she only invited 20 of her friends to the meeting before it got out of hand.

“I have no reason to punish you at all, and I hope there are no more problems of this kind. If you violate this order it will place you in a very serious situation where you could be sent to jail for violating the order. & # 39;
When Ms. Proham spoke on her doorstep, she later said, “It is difficult as I have not been able to have anyone in my house for three months now, but I just have to visit my family at their house.
“I don't think it's fair to have been fined for having parties like this all the time.
"But obviously it was my house and I take responsibility for it."
After the party, shocking snapchat footage showed ravers disregarding social distancing measures while attending the illegal party.
During the footage, hundreds of people with drinks in hand danced to loud music and resisted social distancing measures.
The officers arrived at the scene after receiving numerous complaints from local residents on the street.

After the scenes, Superintendent Helen Caldbeck said, “This illegal house party was an apparent violation of the law and meant that the necessary resources were being drawn from the force.
Even worse was the fact that in the presence of such hostility, our officers were exposed to missiles and missiles were thrown at them.
& # 39; We want to make it clear that issuing an FPN and imposing an anti-social behavior closure notice is only the first step in our actions and we are working unreservedly to ensure that all possible lines of investigation are followed up.
“We have officials checking CCTV and other evidence to identify other perpetrators.
"The people of Greater Manchester deserve better and, frankly, they are disappointed by the few selfish people who shamelessly violate the policies and laws that are designed to protect us."
"If anyone has any information on this, I urge you to contact us on 101 or report them online."
