Hi there, new to the forum so be gentle!

We live in a second floor flat above a bakery shop. The shop has plenty of machinery including large freezers that run all night. Recently we have noticed a reasonably high pitched electrical buzz coming from one wall in our flat. Across multiple rooms but same shared wall. It has been there since the shop opened a couple of years ago but is now stronger. It does go off occasionally but starts again every morning at 5am when they open and is again most apparent late at night 11pm or so. The issue is now so serious that anything we plug into sockets in that wall misbehave. We have bedside lights (the type you touch to switch on) that have been there for years and both of them are coming on by themselves intermittently now. This does not happen when plugged in elsewhere. We have also noticed quite a sharp static type shock when using the shower, which has pipes to it through that wall. The stopcock is also on that wall and when I turn that I get a shock. It is though the whole wall is electrified? How is this possible and what could be the cause, it is a standard construction brick and plaster cavity wall. We have to prove the shop are the cause to have any chance of rectifying the situation. Many thanks, Steve.
