Deptford resident angry about local building works

Deptford resident Laura Ballard said: "All the lorries have been turning here. Coming on and off site.

"We've had men parking here, who are not supposed to be parking here all through the night, coming back to their vehicles, laughing, shouting, joking, slamming their doors, changing their outfits before going home. It's not acceptable.

"They were told they were not supposed to park here. This has been going on since July or August."
