"Children at a school near Selby have had a play break cancelled and hard ball games banned after neighbours complained to the council about noise.
Barlby Community Primary School has also put up a soundproof fence because it fears a noise abatement order.
The school said the decisions were "regrettable" but necessary to prevent the chance of a notice being served.
Some parents are unhappy about the move, which was also criticised by the organisation Play England.
The measures were put in place after some neighbours contacted environmental health officials."
FFS if you want silence invest in some ear plugs or don't live near a school.
