Snoring spouses are keeping each other up all night, according to new research.
A study by doctors at the private BMI The London Independent Hospital found 69 per cent of Tower Hamlets residents said snoring had caused arguments or affected their sleep.
And experts warned that if it is becoming an issue, people should visit their GPs.
Consultant surgeon Mr Darren Gillett said: “Many people may not think that they could visit their GP about their snoring.
“But it is always important to visit your GP so they can perform an assessment and suggest the best available treatment.”
Snoring is caused by muscles in the mouth and throat relaxing and obstructing airways, and usually affects people more as they get older.
