Cabo Roig residents are still waiting for action over what they claim to be the appalling state of the wasteland between Calles Babor and Catalejo.

They say that the 11 year problems over rubbish being dumped there have still not been addressed by the council.

They say the issue gets worse in the summer months with a vile stench during hot weather, as well as rats and mosquitoes to add to all of the fly-tipping.

Local residents wrote to the ex-Orihuela mayor, Monserrate Guillen, back in April, making the point that the waste ground was hardly giving the right impression of the area for tourists or potential new foreign residents.

Meanwhile, The Courier has received a portfolio of photographs showing a variety of sites in the Los Dolses area of the Orihuela Costa that are said not have been cleared of rubbish for a number of weeks.
