Bob The Builder almost brings the house down; INTERNATIONAL SYDNEY.

Noise control officers ordered children at a nursery school disco to turn down Bob The Builder and the Chicken Dance or shut down their party.

The noise abatement raid - called "absurd" by one teacher - happened at One Tree Hill Kindergarten in Auckland, New Zealand's largest city.

The children and their parents were having a blast until an irate neighbour spoiled the fun by calling noise control officers.

Teacher Jenny Skerritt said officers, who were "a little red faced", suddenly appeared at the door with a noise abatement notice.

She said there was some noise, but not enough to disturb several babies - who snoozed through it all.

"I don't think it was that ragey, but it's all a matter of perspective I guess," she told National Radio.
