An official from Milton Keynes council hid in a bush with a sound meter to try to prove that the PA system being used at a charity fundraising event was too loud.

The organisers of the charity bike ride advised the official that they were restricted to 82 decibels but that their own sound check showed that they were only operating at 60 decibels, but were still told by the anonymous official that they were causing a public nuisance, an aspect that caused the charity cyclists to abandon their after-ride party.

Despite the best efforts of Milton Keynes council the event raised £17,000 for Cancer Research UK.
