Residents in an area of Birmingham say they're growing frustrated because it's becoming a flytipping hotspot.

People living on Membury Road in Alum Rock claim the rubbish collected by the city council is instantly being replaced by more.

The most recent incident involved a range of household goods and waste, such as fridges, mattresses and armchairs being dumped on the pavement, early on Wednesday 8th May.

Zaheer Akbar, 37, has reported the latest pile of waste to the council.

It's shocking. The fly-tipping is out of control. It's been cleared on a number of occasions and people keep dumping stuff.

Birmingham City Council says there is no excuse for this dumping to take place on the streets.

Whether it is one bag of rubbish, a fridge or the contents of a house clearance, any fly-tipping in this city is completely unacceptable.
