Hi all,

I live around abouts the Dockhead fire station and more and more often in the middle of the night I keep of being woken up by really loud metalic & glass clanging / crunching noises. Does anyone else hear this? Anyone know what it is?

Me too. We live on the corner of Shad Thames, overlooking the barges - which is where the loud crunching noises come from at high tide.

It sounds as though something has been tied too tightly for the tide, and is chafing against its mooring - excruciatingly loudly.

As it is a recent development, I wondered if it was to do with the Water House refurb - but could just as easily be a pontoon or boat.

The leader of the council noticed it too:
