‘Noisy’ Borussia Dortmund flag gets owners in trouble

Football fans are used to get in trouble for demonstrating their support in various ways, but this one takes the biscuit rather.

A couple in Arnsberg, Germany will face a court appearance later this year after being reported by neighbours for flying a Borussia Dortmund flag in their garden.

Neighbours Jutta and Walter reported the fans to the police because they claimed that the fluttering of the flag caused noise pollution, which seems bloody ridiculous.

There have been rumours in the German media that the complainants are Duisburg fans, hence their wish to have the flag removed, but this remains unconfirmed.
