Aircraft noise getting you down?
It's because Newcastle Airport started using satnav early in 2017 to concentrate aircraft down narrow flight paths.
And that's when the noise got really bad for lots of residents.
The Airport didn't need to do this, it has plenty of airspace capacity. Worst of all, it knew the noise would get worse but it didn't tell anybody - especially residents.
