THE owner of a wall of tyres from Glazebrook is appealing the council’s decision to remove the ‘eyesore’.

Patrick Moran, of Glazebrook Lane, is fighting the council’s demands to remove the bales of used tyres from the land near to the junction on Farrell Street and Kingsway North.

The 46-year-old attended Warrington Magistrates Court today where he argued that the construction does not affect the local amenity.

He also claimed the council did not allow him sufficient time to remove the tyres, which took nine weeks to build.

An appeal date was set for May 21 at Warrington Magistrates Court with Mr Moran expected to represent himself in court. 

The wall of tyres will remain on the land until a decision is made.
