Businesses have different ways of trying to keep thieves away. Some have cameras, some have alarms and some use creepy nursery rhymes. A woman living in the UK fell victim to this nursery rhyme alarm.
According to Ipshich Star:
After months of torment, a mother and her two young children who had been woken on an almost nightly basis finally reported the unusual complaint to Ipswich Borough Council.
The team sprang into action. They joined the woman at the scene and went out to investigate this ongoing mystery.
A spokesman for the council said: “This is unique in our experience – it was difficult to believe a nursery rhyme would be playing in the middle of the night.
“We took a call around midnight and immediately went to the Bramford Road area to find out more - we did hear the nursery rhyme playing from an industrial premises and it sounded very eerie at that time of night. We appreciate that people living nearby would find it quite spooky.”
The music was actually designed to act as a deterrent to trespassers and was activated by motion sensors.
A spokesman from the site said: “The sound is only supposed to act as a deterrent for opportunistic thieves that come onto our property, and it’s designed only to be heard by people on our private land.
“We are now aware of the problem - the motion sensors were being triggered by spiders crawling across the lenses of our cameras and it looks like we’ve had it turned up too loudly.
