North Cantabrians in hot debate over cause of mystery noise

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

A mysterious night-time droning noise is driving some North Canterbury residents insane, but no-one has been able to confirm its origin.

Suggestions flooding social media include 5G towers, seismic activity, angry bees, big brother, electric fences, and the global hum — a phenomenon reportedly experienced worldwide.

The sound has been reported in Belfast, Kaiapoi, Woodend, Rangiora, Mandeville and further afield to Ashley and Loburn, with some saying it keeps them awake at night.

Have you heard the noise?
