Neighbours have expressed their “disgust” at piles of rubbish which they say are regularly appearing outside a Travelodge in Clerkenwell.
The waste is being dumped by the side entrance to the Travelodge Royal Scott Hotel, in 100 Kings Cross Road.
This faces into Great Percy Street, which is residential, and neighbours claim it looks and “horrible” and is attracting vermin to the area.
Jim Anderson, of Great Percy Street, said “This disgusting mountain of rubbish occurs quite regularly, remaining and growing for several days.
“It will be cleared eventually but looks horrible and attracts vermin and scavengers.”
