£1m payout over country house idyll ruined by the scream of Harrier jets: no one should have to endure this, rules judge

The price of rural tranquillity was set at almost £1m by a high court judge yesterday for a couple who complained that their lives had been ruined by RAF Harrier jets screaming over their 17th century manor house. Farmer Darby Dennis and his wife Catherine painted a picture of cowering dogs, terrified children bursting into tears, and daily life left in tatters by the racket.
