From the grounds of their unfinished property, mocked for its resemblance to a ‘Morrisons supermarket’, the Rooneys will regularly see planes flying above them. And sharp-eyed passengers will easily be able to spot the huge property with its full-size football pitch in the 40-acre grounds – and possibly even glimpse the former England legend enjoying a kickaround with his four sons.

Even the noise from take-offs could also be heard above the sounds of sheep and birds in nearby fields.

The aircraft noise is getting worse when the wind is blowing in an easterly direction and planes coming in to land then choose to circle to the west of the property Work on the converted farm came to a standstill in April due to concerns around building supply deliveries as lockdown restrictions came into full force.
