DURING the heatwave, many of us will have our windows open to try and get a cool breeze in the house.
However, this can come with some drawbacks – particularly when it comes to noises outside – as one frustrated neighbour found out.
A woman has taken to Mumsnet to share her annoyance at her neighbour’s loud wind chimes.
She revealed she has been left "distressed and frustrated" from the "big resonant tubular bells" in the nearby garden.
The sound got so loud, she asked the neighbours to move the chimes away from her home, and they did – but only two feet away.
They have now refused any further action and “cut off all contact” with the upset woman, and her plight has decided internet users.

She explained on the forum: "We politely asked our neighbours to move their wind chimes as we could hear them clearly in our garden and in our house with the windows or doors open.
“These aren't the little tinkly chimes but the big resonant tubular bells.
"The neighbours were quite hostile but did move them – about two feet from where they had previously been. We could still hear them although slightly less frequently.
"We politely asked again but they were very aggressive, accused us of harassing them, and cut off all contact with us.

“We've been quite distressed and frustrated and can't enjoy our house and garden like we used to.

Another added: "How dreadful. I absolutely hate wind chimes. There’s no getting away from the noise. I’m so sorry for you!"
However, one said: "They're one of those things that you have to put up with – it's annoying and they might be being unneighbourly, but that's not a crime.
“Unless they're large cymbals I doubt they'd get anywhere near the threshold of being a nuisance noise."
