The Scarborough couple, described as “music lovers” in the Mail, were then treated to 13-year-old Sophia Haviland’s many attempts to master the Celine Dion tune My Heart Will Go On.

The works of the Canadian chanteuse are murderous to music at the best of times, but in the fingers of young Sophia, music was being read its last rights and lowered into a bottomless pit.

So the Wrights complained, and a noise abatement order was slapped on Sophia and her tribute to Celine.

Take it as read that Sophia’s parents are not best pleased. Father Clive, described somewhat ominously as a “part-time musician”, plans to appeal against the order.

“We are a musical family,” he claims, before saying how the Wrights’ complaint is one rooted in jealously.
