Residents in Southend have complained that up to 50 planes per day prepare to take off - at the bottom of their gardens.
London Southend Airport has built a new taxi-way strip right behind a row of houses on Wells Avenue. Angry occupants, like Alex and June Carr, said that the jets emit unacceptable levels of noise and fumes.
Alex said the taxiing problem got worse after Ryanair started flying from Southend at the beginning of April.
Southend Airport hopes to triple the number of it's flights over the next few years. The increase in air traffic has lead to airport building the new taxiing strip.
Last year, Southend Airport handled up to 1,480,139 passengers (up 34 percent from 2014). However, the airport has plans to increase passenger numbers to 5 million by 2022.
