Hotline tackles late night noise
University of Lincoln
The University of Lincoln is running the "Shush" campaign
The University of Lincoln is introducing a telephone hotline for people in the city's West End to report excessive night time noise.

There have been a large number of complaints about the impact of students living in the area.

The telephone line is part of the University's "Shush" campaign, aimed at improving relations between residents and students.

Officials say they are committed to reducing late night noise.

Dean Eldridge, of the University's Students' Union, said: "We are doing our best to let the local community know that we are going to be there for them.

"We are going to be proactive in dealing with the problem and making sure we nip it in the bud.

"We have introduced this call line and we want people to use it rather than just moaning and getting nothing done."
