I was going to give a jolly old rant about the daftness of Nanny on this siren story.
However, given the fact I am labouring under a stonking hangover from hell today, I have more than a little sympathy for people who don't want to hear loud sirens:)
Therefore I merely report the story for information, without the customary smart arse comments and associated "wit".
It seems that the police may find themselves in court if they play their sirens too loud.
City councillor John Warmisham of Salford, Lancashire, said that response vehicles stationed at the new Pendleton station on Belvedere Road were making life a misery for neighbours.
A spokesman for a local residents' association, said:
"There have been a lot of complaints at our meetings ever since the station opened in January. The racket is terrible."
Warmisham has warned that he will ask his environmental health officers to launch legal action if there isn't a cut in noise.
