Scrap Metal Vans noise

Scrap metal vans have been an issue for residents in Brandwood and elsewhere in Birmingham for over the last year.

Residents complain about vans sounding their horns and shouting from as early as 7am in the morning on Saturdays and Sundays. Complaints have been made to BCC Environmental Department, but residents must get the culprits registration plate numbers- which is not always an easy task!

Please look at this interesting information which was sent to us -it looks as though no van with a horn/chime/loud speaker should be making any noise before 12pm and after 7pm. So are scrap metal vans treated the same as ice cream vans? And if not why not?
