Soiled nappies thrown into trees on an estate are yet to be removed, the council has confirmed.

Nappy bags could be seen dangling from branches behind Meredith Towers in Thornhill.

The ‘disgusting’ sight prompted a clean-up of the surrounding area, but a solution is yet to be sought for the nappies in the trees.

It comes after Southampton City Council said waste crews were unable to collect the rubbish.

Daily Echo:

But as of March 13, team members removed eight black bags of nappies and a further three bags on the following Monday.

A spokesperson for the council said: “Unfortunately, the team were unable to reach the bags pictured, so are exploring further options to remove the bags.

“The Neighbourhood Warden team and Housing Management Officer are monitoring the situation.

“We are currently writing residents of Meredith Towers asking for information to identify the perpetrator.”

One resident of the tower blocks was appalled by the unknown perpetrator’s actions.

The woman, who wished to remain unnamed, said: “I cannot believe there are people in this city who are willing to throw human waste around.

“When did we become animals?”
