People living on the seafront in Clacton and Holland-on-Sea have been woken up in the early hours by thudding, drilling and vibrations.

The noise is being caused by building work at a new wind farm at Gunfleet Sands, 9km off the coast of Clacton.

Tendring Council received 13 complaints, but said it might be powerless to act if the wind farm is too far out to sea, as it may be outside the area it haspowers over.

There are 47 more foundation piles to be hammered into the seabed which take two days each, so there could be more sleepless nights.
