The residents on the outskirts of Ipswich were listening to an eerie sound every night from about a year. A tune of children's nursery rhyme of 'It's raining, it's pouring' used to come from near the houses but no one knew what it was. The mystery is finally solved and the culprits were spiders! If you're wondering if spiders sing, then no, but they can sure cause some tunes to play, those alarm sirens. 'Ghost Ship' Found Off Myanmar's Coast Sailed 9 Years Ago, Mystery of Empty Cargo Solved.
Several residents found it creepy to listen to the nursery rhymes' tune at odd hours, sometimes at 2 am or at 4 am. The rendition even repeated for hours together at a go, scaring people in the vicinity even more. Alice Randle one of the residents told The Independent about the sound. She said, "It’s sung by what sounds like a very young child. It’s very haunting, people have said it’s like something out of Freddie Krueger." At first, she thought she was hallucinating.

The first sound was heard in September last year and from the last few months, she was on a mission to find it what it was. She and her friend tried calling several people. She called the Ipswich Borough Council and they came to the scene several times but heard nothing. On September 10, she heard it again and gave them a call. The sound was coming once again in the last couple of weeks. They followed the sound and it was revealed to be an alarm that was triggered.
It was still unclear how it rang at such odd hours. "When they examined the motion sensors there were spiders and webs across it, so that’s how they know," as informed by the locals in the area. This alarm was supposed to scare the thieves in the nearby property. But it was turned on loud thus scaring people in the vicinity. The resident has been informed about the problem and they have adjusted it. So there was no creepy supernatural putting their child to sleep but spiders playing along with the tunes.
