A sleep-deprived couple are rejoicing after an electrical generator which has kept them awake for a week was finally removed this morning.

Brian and Amena Warner, of High Beeches, Banstead, said the generator was placed outside their house last Friday evening, four hours after a power cut left the street without electricity. 

Mr Warner, who is self-employed, and his wife, a nurse at Epsom and St Helier hospital trust, said the noise from the generator was causing havoc with their sleep patterns.

He said: "We’ve just not been able to get any sleep, but thankfully the electricity has been resolved now."

With the electricity fault rectified yesterday, the generator was removed this morning.

That generator has more spark than him. What a whinger!
If you gave him a £1,000, he'd moan that he had to take it to the bank himself.
