Is Summercourt the 'Bermuda Triangle' of Cornwall?

It is claimed dozens of cars are locking and unlocking by themselves.

Locals have been reporting problems for months, including a child being stuck inside.

Technology expert Mike Parris reckons issues with the key fobs could be down to radio interference. He said: "Imagine if two people were having a conversation in a quiet environment, they would be able to converse quite normally, if however someone played loud music over the top they wouldn't be able to understand each other as they would be being drowned out by other noise, this is the radio equivalent of that.

"The vast majority of key fobs in the UK use a particular frequency, specifically designed for short range radio communications and is free to use, for those same reasons it is commonly used by all sorts of other wireless devices."
