An Essex MP has put forward plans to regulate the use of 'mosquito alarms'.

The alarms send out high pitched noise that can only be heard by young people.

Clacton MP Giles Watling said the devices discriminate, may cause health problems and do not deter anti-social behaviour.

He said there should be regulations as to when and where they can be used.
