A HEAP of tyres left piled up outside a home for days has outraged nearby neighbours.
The tyres are piled so high, they peak above the first floor of a nearby terrace house.
One local woman, who asked to remain anonymous, said that apart from the nuisance of them being unflattering to look at, neighbours were worried they could be set alight.
Sy het gese: “The house is being used as a bit of a dumping ground it would seem.
“We try to keep ourselves to ourselves, but it is really frustrating to see it on your doorstep.
“If they caught fire the toxic fumes would be a huge problem and if it did spread we would struggle to get away from the flames, it is a bit scary really.”
“I’m hoping to move out soon if I’m honest. I’d love to be able to move away from it all now, but I can’t yet. I try to block it out as best I can, but you can’t really.”
Other neighbours, also unwilling to give their names out of fear of possible reprisal, said it was disappointing but not surprising.
Een het gesê: “It’s obviously a bit of an eyesore, but it’s not worth complaining about. I don’t want my window put through.”

'N Ander het gesê: ”You get freezers, matrasse, sofas dumped on this street all the time, so tyres is no surprise really.”
Someone else said: “It’s just sad that some people can spoil an area for the majority. It’s just ridiculous to see it all stacked up so high in front of a house.”
Humberside Fire Brigade had attended to assess the possible risk of the tyres stacked outside the house.
The tyres have since been taken away by two men driving an untaxed yellow van that’s listed on a Government website as blue.
One of the lads refused to confirm whether he owned the terrace house where the tyres had been dumped on Saturday.
Hy het gesê: ”We are moving the tyres now, so what’s the problem?
“Only been here since Saturday and some dole dosser has complained – they’ve got nothing better to do.”
