“The noise is like a jet engine taking off in the morning,” said Mrs Knight.

“You know the film ‘The Birds’ by Alfred Hitchcock? It’s like that.

“In summer I can’t put my washing out because of all the pigeon poop. It hums.

“I’ve reported him a few times. Nobody else seemed to do anything.

“We’ve thought about moving but nobody wants to buy a house near to him.

“We would have thought twice about moving in if we’d known he lived there.

“He’s broken his Asbo many times and he knows exactly what he’s doing.”
