Summer of Noise

Summer of Noise follows local authority Noise Control teams across Britain as they lead the fight for peace and quiet.

Half a million moved house last year because of noise, 42% of the British population are upset by it and six people a year are even killed in arguments about it!

Over the last 10 years noise complaints have trebled. Complaints range from noisy builders, summer festivals, car alarms and loud music to train horns, barking dogs and even a stray peacock.

And then there’s the 83 year-old war veteran with over 250 noise complaints to his name – that’s more than one a week, every week for the last four years!
