Funny noise

Can anyone explain the constant but very faint droning noise that went on through to night? It sounded like a distant aeroplane that never disappears, or something mechanical in the distance.

If your near the prison, then maybe you heard the noise of prisoners drilling a hole out of the prison wall!
