Huge flytipping spot develops in alleyway behind houses

A HUGE flytipping spot has been building up in an alleyway behind houses in Seaforth during lockdown - with angry residents saying they are fed up of the mess.

Since the coronavirus outbreak, rubbish has been building up between Caradoc Road and Rossini Street as flytippers continue to add to the piles of unwanted furniture and bin bags.

Some of the items included a dining table, cupboards, doors, mattresses, as well as general rubbish such as bin bags and even a discarded shopping trolley.

One local resident contacted the Champion to say he has struggled to get the council to come and clear up the mess, claiming he was told it could take up to six weeks.

He said: “I think it’s a disgrace that we’ve had to put up with this for so long. There have been rats and I’ve seen them myself. It’s also a fire hazard because we would have to use the alley to escape a fire and we can’t if it’s full of rubbish.”

A spokesperson for Sefton Council said: “We will be going out to inspect the area and to investigate ways of controlling access to prevent this issue continuing.”
