Are your neighbours stressful? Over 27% of British people have problems with their neighbours. Researchers asked over 2,000 adults about their neighbours. Half the people felt angry. Nearly half felt stressed. Almost 10% were afraid of their neighbours. Most people did not know how to get help and advice.

The biggest problems were loud voices, loud music and loud TVs. Drugs were also a problem. One-third of people talked to the neighbour about a problem. The problem got worse if the neighbour did not say sorry or change. The researchers said young people stay silent about their problems. They should keep a diary.
