Winner of Alton Towers noise suit hears complaints from neighbours of his factory

Posted Tuesday, August 3, 2004 8:27 PM | Contributed by Jeff

Churchill China chairman Stephen Roper yesterday won his landmark battle against noise nuisance from Alton Towers, but today families living near Churchill's factory claim they have suffered a decade of misery from site noise. John and Annette Steele have lived opposite the factory in High Street, Tunstall, for the last seven years. During that time they have seen the site expand dramatically. They have also seen a large swathe of factory land sold off to KFC.

Perhaps Mr. Roper should live next to his factory for six months and then see how bad he has it. *** This post was edited by Eric H 8/3/2004 9:55:29 PM ***

As Nelson so politely says in the Simpsons "Ha,Ha"

What goes around comes around. I so hope those residents get together and start making life really tricky for Mr Roper and lets see if he is willing to spend as much time and Money on reducing noise and the such like Alton Towers have been doing for years.

Bring on the lawsuit! Wouldn't it be great if Mr. Roper were hit with a lawsuit and lost.

That, my friends is irony.

The Alanis song that John quotes in the above post, however, has nothing to do with irony... but that's for another discussion forum. ;)
