Banging noises every night!

Every night around midnight I hear a banging noise. At first I thought it was coming from my loft, however when I had a peep in there I could hear it again and it wasn't coming from the loft. I can't pin point where it is coming from and it is really annoying! The house next door has been empty for a few months and it began when workmen went in to carry out repairs etc. The new neighbours are due to move in anytime now.

I did have a problem with mice a few moths ago but after putting some poisen down there are no signs of them now. We also have a problem with squirrels here too, but there are no signs of them in my loft. I have a combi boiler that keeps going on 'lock out' and the radiators were drained about 6 months ago. However, if the banging was a result of water hammer then this would continue during the day.... can anyone help?

If the workmen left the central heating on the timer then usually the heating would "kick in" at night.  If the system had not been used for a while then there may be an airlock.

Thank you Samej. I'm not sure if its a coincidence that it began when the workmen began repairs to next door, however last night the banging was so loud and its definately coming from my side of the wall. I flushed the loo a few times and ran a tap for about 5 mins, and it seemed to stop... although that seemed to be a short term solution to the problem I would rather get it sorted as I don't fancy going through that sherade every night! Any suggestions how I can fix it... would bleeding the radiators help??
