Five wheelie bins bulging with rubbish were attracting flies and emitting a smell for days last week.

The eyesore was nominated ‘mess of the month’ by a member of the public who said the bins are often overfilled, left blocking the entrance to the High Street from the car park off Fydell Crescent and ‘don’t create a nice impression of the town’.

They were cleared on Thursday.

A Boston Borough Council spokesman said they will keep an eye on the area to ensure access is not blocked.
