Ealing LBC has become the first London borough to act to stop noise from car alarms, Independent London reports (p6).

Nuisance caused by car alarms being triggered by hot weather has prompted Ealing to introduce tough measures under the 1993 Noise and Statutory Nuisance Act, allowing officers to break into offending vehicles, silence the alarms and tow the cars away, the paper reports.

Police say many people forget to close windows and air vents, resulting in draughts which set off the alarms.
