Neighbours are calling for action after a housing estate was turned into a “dumping ground” for persistent fly-tippers.

Unwanted mattresses, fridges, tables and chairs are frequently discarded and left to rot in Cowley Place, Hendon.

Now people living nearby say they are “fed up” with having to look at the mess and desperately want something done about it.

Sixty-year-old Ian Deeley, who lives in Lower Fosters, Brent Street, said: “I hate looking out of my window and seeing all of this rubbish. My neighbours have young children – they don’t want to see that. It’s disgusting.

“It’s an absolute tip and something needs to be done about it. It never used to be like this.”

Mr Deeley believes people are dumping their rubbish because they don’t want to pay for it to be taken away legally.

He added: “They also leave their rubbish bags there. I think it’s people coming from nearby shops and houses who’ve filled their own bins. It needs to be stopped.”

The Times Series is waiting for a comment from Barnet Borough Council.
