We live on horror road where thugs dump mountains of rubbish & have SEX against our fences – it's a nightmare | The Sun

DISGUSTED homeowners say the shame of living next to bags of stinking, fly-tipped rubbish stops them inviting friends and family over.

Locals of Hovendon Gardens, Nottingham, are furious at the inability of the council or the police to clean up the area or even to halt the drug abuse and public sex that has turned their once proud neighbourhood into a cesspit. 

Kevin Draper, 59, who cares for his seriously ill wife Kerry, says they have been forced to take taxis to hospital appointments because his car is regularly blocked in by walls of rotting bin bags, carpets and mattresses.

"It happens every day now. Last Friday was particularly bad with it piled up almost as high as the fence," says Kevin.

"There was carpet, furniture, a TV, kids toys and black bags which were crawling with that many maggots you could see them from a distance.

"The place absolutely stank".

He added that almost every night the couple hear people dumping rubbish outside their home.

Kerry said that her husband has to wash down the back gate every day after drug users urinate on it and have sex against it.

"He has even had to clean up human poo," she says.

Irene Reid, 71, who has lived on the street since 1978 said that things are going from bad to worse.

"You walk past with the little ones and they are dealing their drugs," says Irene, adding that she no longer sits out in her front garden due to the state of the neighbourhood.

Despite The Sun Online visiting just after the bin lorries had been for their weekly visit, the area was covered in bits of furniture, duvets, children’s toys and black bin bags with the pavements on neighbouring Hazelwood Road particularly busy with discarded rubbish.

Another resident, Zulekha Khan, 39, lives as a single mother in the area with her three children.

She said: "There is always drug stuff outside and noise when the children are going to bed. It’s not hygienic and all our houses have been hit with eggs on different occasions."

"I am too scared to go to the shops after dark."

The council have reportedly spent money on the area in recent years, including putting up gates on the residents' car park after complaints of fly-tipping.

However, the same rubbish now simply piles up outside the locals' homes.

A Nottingham City Council spokesperson said: "If someone wishes to highlight an issue in their neighbourhood, including litter or fly-tipping, they can do so online and we will look into it as soon as possible."
