A nationwide campaign that aims to find the country's noisiest home was launched at the House of Commons yesterday.

MPs and local authority noise pollution officers are being urged to submit case studies to the Noise Abatement Society, as part of a joint initiative with specialist window company James Harcourt, which hopes to raise awareness of noise pollution.

Peter Wakeham, director of the Noise Abatement Society, said: "Government statistics show that 32 million people across the UK are exposed to high levels of noise.

"As road, rail and air traffic continues to grow, we are taking calls from increasingly desperate homeowners looking for a solution to this intolerable problem."
