PremierLeague-News.Com - Birmingham city council said they would issue fines or take court action as appropriate against flytippers dumping rubbish outside Topfield House
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Dirty nappies, a toilet seat and piles of black bin bags sparked disgust after being dumped outside a city tower block after the Easter weekend. The mess has been building on the grass surrounding Topfield House in Druids Heath for months - but worsened when the bin chute became blocked two weeks ago. The litter was said to be 'increasing by the day' following the Bank Holiday weekend, with shocking pictures capturing the filth on Monday (April 6). Along with the overflowing bin bags, there were also three mattresses flytipped outside the block of flats in Druids Lane. Gary Staples, whose son lives in the block, had seen the pile worsen over two months before sharing the images to social media - sparking disgust from local residents.

One said: "Go through bags and find out who's rubbish it is and send it back to them!!" Another wrote: "What a disgrace." Mr Staples added: "I just saw it and a couple of people said can you take a photo and put it on the B14, it was cleared up the next day. The bin chute is still blocked from the 10th floor. The bin chute has been blocked from the 10th floor for two weeks, residents say (Image: Gary Staples) "It's a welcome for rats because most of it is food waste. You tell how long it's all been there, there's no grass left since they've moved it - it's just soil." Birmingham city council came to clear the dumped rubbish the day after the social media post. The authority said it's dealing with the issue of the bin chute and vowed to hand out fines or take court action - if evidence of offenders can be provided.
