An overflowing bin has been called a 'potential health hazard' by residents.

The bin is located off Tilbury Lane in Botley and residents called on the council to empty the 'eye sore'. However, the bin is the responsibility of housing developer Persimmon Homes.

A spokesperson for Persimmon Homes said: “We are committed to the maintenance of the development and the bins are on a fortnightly schedule for emptying. We would like to thank the customer for drawing our attention to the situation on Tilbury Lane and for people taking care to use the bins provided. We have now arranged for an additional visit for the bin to be emptied.”
