Ticked off by church clock night chimes.

A CHURCH clock that chimes every 15 minutes through the night has caused a ding-dong after an attempt to silence it.

Resident Chris Molden - who lives just 100 yards away in a PS1.5million home - says the sound keeps him awake and wants it halted between 11pm and 7am.

But the church says it will only reduce the number of times it goes off, rather than stopping it completely.

The clock has chimed every 15 minutes for more than 100 years in the village of Wherwell, Hants.

Churchwarden Pam Prince said: "The village loves to hear it chiming."

Officials will take readings to measure the noise.
