Neighbours make complaint over Marco Pierre White's 'noisy' guinea fowl
A hotel owned by celebrity chef Marco Pierre White is being investigated over claims of noise nuisance from its flock of guinea fowl.
Neighbours of the Rudloe Arms in Corsham have complained to Wiltshire Council about the noise and mess the birds make.
They say they are being woken from 6am by 30 birds, which are roosting in trees and covering their properties and gardens with droppings.
Environmental health officers are now investigating the claims at the hotel, which is owned by the Michelin-starred chef.
A council spokesman said: "We have had complaints from neighbours about loud noise from birds on the hotel premises.
"We are currently in discussion with the management of the hotel and together we are looking to resolve this issue as quickly as possible."
The hotel, which is part of the chef's Wheeler's of St James brand, did not wish to comment.
