On Sunday night between between approx 10.45pm and 12.15am there was the most horrendous noise coming from, I think, Blackfriars Road
- Stamford Street
end. It sounded like souped-up cars, or motorbikes with no sliencers, having a race meeting. The noise from the engines was appalling and it also sounded like they had an audience goading them on. Tyres were screeching, engines were revving, brakes were being slammed on at high speed. I can't believe it was only those of us in Burrell Street
who heard it, but this end of Blackfriars Road
is a bit light on residents, so if they kept to this end of the road other local residents may well have been unaware of what was going on. I did wonder if the new cycle lane was being used by some nutters who thing high speed cars / motorbikes creating havoc and noise late at night is fun. I suppose I should have gone out to see what was happening, but I kept thinking it would stop at any moment, particularly as every so often the noise faded, as though they'd moved on, but then they were back.
