A couple living near the Alton Towers theme park in Staffordshire have told the High Court it is still too noisy. Owner Tussauds Theme Park Ltd was ordered to cut noise levels in 2005 after complaints about noise nuisance. The crown court later raised these levels, but Stephen and Suzanne Roper have taken the park to court again, saying levels are still too high.

However, I think the Ropers are making a bigger deal out of this than they should be. What none of the stories ever say is Mr Roper owns a big pottery factory that makes WAY more noise and pollution than Alton Towers ever will. Its also in the countryside surrounded by little houses that people live in. So, its like the kettle calling the pot black in this instance. He should really practice what he preaches.
