18,000 tonne waste mountain 'the smell is awful'

Resident, Alan Cowburn said: "It seems they are just trying to drive me out of my home. The smell is awful on some days and we get a lot of dust.

"The lorries are so large they have to back in because they can't turn around at the bottom and we get beep beep beeping all day long sometimes from six o'clock in the morning."

"We've even had lorries coming in at midnight. It's so much dust and in the winter it's all mud. And you get a lot if flies and the odd rat running around so all in all it's a total nightmare. The house next door sold recently and they knocked £25,000 off the price."
