Hull City Council Portfolio Holder for Environmental Services, Councillor Rosie Nicola, said: “Abandoned waste and neglected properties are a blight on our communities and the council works hard to make sure we all have a city that we can be proud of.

“We take complaints about the conditions of private properties very seriously and these latest prosecutions demonstrate how the council is working to tackle the problem.

“We encourage all residents to report any concerns they have about the conditions of properties in their communities and remind people that the council can provide support to remove waste.”
