**Children investigated for laughing too loudly **
**School pupils have been accused of laughing too loudly during playtime. **
Council inspectors are investigating a Roman Catholic primary school after complaints about the noise levels.
Officials from a noise pollution team were brought in after neighbours claimed they were being confined inside their homes due to the “unbearable” screams of laughter from the youngsters.
Locals also complained about shouting by the school’s sports teacher during games lessons at SS Osmund and Andrew’s Primary School in Breightmet, near Bolton, Greater Manchester. One described it as a “monotone bellowing”.
Nearly 150 people who live near the 384 pupil school which aims to “nurture the Christian values of love and respect for others” have signed a petition demanding that Bolton Council takes steps to reduce the noise.
Investigators have now caried out noises assessment tests to see if the levels of laughing exceed tolerable limits recommended by the World Health Organisation.
I wish I could say “only in UK” or in selfish, secular, anti-child Europe but I’ve seen ridiculous “noise” complaints here.
