Kidderminster Shuttle: Residents woken by loud noise Residents woken by loud noise

KIDDERMINSTER residents were woken in the early hours of this morning by loud noises caused by an industrial process.

Police received reports from concerned residents in Tolley Road, claiming they were woken by the loud noise which sounded like a steam train.

A West Mercia police spokesman confirmed it was related to an industrial process, however.

"It's not unusual for loud banging noises to be coming from steel-making processes early in the morning but it seems like this one was louder than normal," he said.

So the police think it was related to an industrial process. Ive lived in this area for over 40 yrs and have NEVER heard anything like it. 3.30 am it was a train that was having dificulty going along it sounded its whistle as it went through the tunnel so why the cover up.

I too have heard nothing like that in 40+ years in this area. I didn't hear a whistle, but could see a trail of steam. As for a cover up - it would be very difficult to keep 'an unofficial loco movement' secret.
