MOUNTAINS of burnt out bicycle tyres and shop fittings remain scattered across a car park almost a week after an industrial skip fire on the Greyhound Retail Park.
At just before midnight last Wednesday (November 14) smoke billowed across Sealand Road as firefighters battled to extinguish the blaze outside the derelict Halfords building.
Now more than a week after the fire shoppers walking towards Argos and Comet on the retail park are being faced with mountains of burnt out waste and a growing pile of litter which has been left rotting and sodden across the car park.
And among the charred bike tyres, shop fittings and cardboard disused wrappers and drink cartons reveal that passers-by have been adding to the mound of waste turning it into a dumping ground for passing motorists and pedestrians.
Managers of the site Edgerley Simpson Howe confirmed that they were aware of an issue with litter of the site, saying they had contacted Halfords who had assured them they were going to remove the rubbish earlier this week.
Property manager Richard Wynn-Davies said: “We were in talks with Halfords on Monday and told them we would be clearing up the site and charging them for it, but they reassured us they would send someone by this morning (Wednesday).
“It is their rubbish it got set on fire by someone which is not their fault. If Halford’s do not clear it up by the end of the week we will be clearing it up and charging them for it.”
