Do you on well with your neighbours, or the people living next door stressful? A new report that a quarter of people in Britain have had problems with their neighbours in the past year. The survey was out by an organization called "Which?” It tries to help and consumers. The researchers asked 2,062 adults about their relations with neighbours. They found that 27 per cent had problems. "Which?" said on its website that: "Half [of the people] were feeling angry and half felt irritable, with 42 per cent saying they felt stressed, and one in ten to feeling afraid." It added: "The survey also that 64 per cent didn't know where to go to help and advice."

The biggest complaints about neighbours loud voices and the sound of arguing. Loud music and televisions, and doors slamming were also a problem. People also drug use and police arriving at their neighbour's house. Only one-third of people to the noisy neighbour about the problem. However, people said the problem worse if the neighbour did not or with their annoying behaviour. "Which?" said 86 per cent of young people (those aged 18-24) did not where to go to get advice. A "Which?" spokesperson said: "Our research has found that young people especially are in silence." "Which?" said people to a diary of unneighbourly behaviour.
