WARRINGTON Borough Council has demanded that a wall of tyres be removed following a string of complaints.

A number of advertising signs have been attached to the wall near to the Kingsway Bridge by clearviewroadsigns.com.

Officers visited the eyesore on January 10 and have written to the owner to demand that they remove the unauthorised development from the land as the wall requires planning permission, which has not been granted.

The owner had until last Friday to remove the tyres, which have been bound together to form a wall.

A council spokesperson said: “In the event that the unauthorised development is not removed from the land the council will consider taking legal action as the development potentially causes harm to the character and appearance of the area.”
