Pensioner Roger Dymock lives in Haslar Crescent, Waterlooville, and has reported the issue to the council on three separate occasions.

He said: ‘If you live within 100 yards of it, it must be horrendous. It must be really deafening.

‘I live a mile away and I can still hear it. It started a week last Saturday.

‘If it goes off at night we have to shut out windows which isn’t clever in this weather.’

He added: ‘The council haven’t acted quickly enough to deal with it.’

Havant Borough Council said it is busy dealing with the alarm.

A spokeswoman for the authority said: ‘We are aware of the issue with the alarm.

‘An environmental health officer is at the scene assessing the situtation.’
