IT was a noise which infuriated the locals and baffled the States police…
Several residents in Springfield suffered a sleepless night on Saturday after a mysterious noise similar to a gunshot repeatedly reverberated around the area.
The blasts began shortly after 9 pm and continued at regular intervals until the early hours.
Several residents reported hearing the noise, and one neighbour – father-of-two Richard Pearce – even phoned the States police and took to the streets in the early hours in an attempt to solve the mystery.
Eventually, the problem was solved – see today’s JEP to find out how.
