A Bell Ringer in York says a New Years Eve tradition was ruined because a stage show carried on at Midnight drowning out the sound of Great Peter.
York Minster has rung in the New Year for centuries but this time crowds were entertained by a special event to mark the end of York 800.
At Midnight the band continued without pausing for the bells to be heard .
Bellringer John Ridgeway-Wood says he's writing to the council asking for an explanation as he feels he and his colleagues wasted their time.
