A SANKEY Bridges resident is fed up of the amount of fly-tipping and litter that is being dumped on the streets around his house.

Terry Robinson, says the fields behind Evelyn Street are inundated with rubbish.

Two years ago, Terry was recovering from open heart surgery and a stroke when he tripped over a dumped mattress in an alleyway off Evelyn Street.

The pensioner suffered a broken shoulder but the council stated that this was 'unadopted land'.

Terry said: "Since then it has gone worse, it is absolutely horrific.

"There is a bathtub that someone has dumped in the field and litter is strewn across it.

"When you are just driving around I don't think you would notice it, it is when you are walking along the side streets and at the back of the houses that it becomes clear just how much rubbish is being flytipped."
