What else can I do? Please help/advise

I live in a terraced house with my wife and two children aged 7 and 11.

We have lived were we do for some time but recently (months) had a new neighbour move in who from day one has been an utter nightmare. 

She is mostly nocturnal, and is awake most nights right through playing loud extremely basey music. The music is irritating not only us but the other side of her and neighbours over the road who have even commented and said they don't know how we put up with it.

Not only is there music but there seems to be many people coming to the house partying and, by the smell, smoking weed.....a lot. They turn music up when her other neighbour bangs on the wall and shout obscenities back to her and start shouting wooh as they continue to  play it. We have rang the police a few times, once.they came, knocked, they turned it down, they went, they turned it back up. Another time they pulled up some time after the call and drove off doing nothing. The last time they didn't even seem to arrive at all. 

There has been many things happen around the noise issue which includes her mate moving in, she has men coming for loud sex every half hour on n off on random days, bmw's, sporty cars, mercs they turn up in, music on and loud sex ensues. Have to move my 7 year old who's woken by it up to his sisters room (3rd floor) to avoid that situation. She stole our bin n left our number on it, we eventually stole it back and she took another neighbours. Her dog has bitten one of her friends, an ambulance came. Dog craps all over yard and its not picked up. She once left the dog for 3 days with no visits to go on a trip. People turn up for including taxi drivers who take em out and back in like 10 mins who are passed bags with pills/powder in. One lad sat on our front with no top on, window down put a powder on the back of his hand and snorted the substance in front of my son as we came in. She danced on street too with windows open and music blasting out from the house. Her sound system is up and downstairs. She often plays both at once with differing clashing music. She is from middlesbrough were she has been in trouble with police before as was in paper and on website. Her other neighbour advised shes a well known lap dancer and escort. Also on her facebook she has a daughter who's been taken off her (not surprised). We have heard her shout at and whacking the dog in anger. She has a mate who gets really bad and growl etc when they been taking drugs, she is often a mess. They also had windows put through twice by people knocking at their door, they were in but didnt answer, these lads were miffed as hell. Police broke door down who she was aggressive with. Wasnt a raid as we thought, they had reason to believe she was going to kill herself which I doubt given she told people. 

Council have written a letter to which she ignored. We are currently completing a noise diary for them but hear from many its a long pointless task cos nothing gets done.

I wish I could move away, hate my own home now, we are home owners in negative equity so cant. Work are starting to notice I'm tired which isn't great. My wife's upset, my kids don't care bar the lack of sleep for school.

Unfortunately not. Not within the law. Sounds like she's a tenant so her landlord is liable and you must continue to report all of her anti social behaviour to them.
Also report all criminality to the police. All noise problems to the council.
It gets wearing but bad people don't get chucked out of their houses because of one or two (or) 20 incidents. From the councils view they will always have this problem, they can just move it around but these people are a problem wherever they go.
Get your neighbours on board and those who shout loudest and longest get action.

If only They had to get up at seven in the morning to be at the job centre every day, I'm sure that would solve many problems for people that suffer like you do. It's a shame that nothing can be done, but even these people have a right to live there way. Only when society changes so that the day starts routinely for most working people, and school children. But people without a job to go to, or kids to get to school on time. These are the groups that have no respect for others. If they were made to que daily from Monday to Friday at 9am. the music would stop at 11pm. I'm sorry that what I am saying isn't going to help. Advice I'd give you, is to play something that you like to sing along too, and play and sing out . "Zip pity do da Zip pity Day my Oh my what a beautiful morning, Oh what a beautiful day, I've got this wonderful feeling everything's going my way" or "Hi Oh silver lining, everywhere I go, hey baby, I see the sun is shining but I don't make a fuse because it's obvious" 

Come Rain or Shine. Sing and be merry. If you can't beat them join them.

I sit outside all day singing, and I know (because my children have told me) that my singing is awful. God knows what my neighbours think. But the squirrels love me(because I have monkey nuts in my pockets), the birds come from everywhere, maybe to find out where the racket is coming from.

Anyway Chief80, I hope that your music can keep them awake during the day, or . If you have a car with an alarm, super keep walking past and give your tires a kick every 30 minutes or so.

You said they had dog's. You can download some cracking CAT cry's. Play it in the garden all day.

Don't get angry, get even.

I sang While I was protesting last year.

Come to think of it. That's probably why I got a four month custodial sentence  for my crime.

May you soon have peace.
