Abandoned shopping trolleys have forced residents of a Hull estate to call for action.

Residents of Orchard Park have described their fury over discarded supermarket shopping trolleys which have been cast away into local drains, in turn affecting wildlife and risking flooding.

One resident was forced to ask "why" when she discovered two trolleys in Beverley and Barmston Drain, calling out the "really awful people living among us".

She went on to call on local MPs and councillors to do their bit and "demand all local supermarkets restrict their trolleys from leaving stores locally", similarly to a move by Asda in Kingswood.

Her cause for concern comes for wildlife and flooding and says those responsible are "down right evil".

She said: "Putting toxins into these drains where wildlife live is not only stupid as they'll affect the flow of water during torrential downpours causing flooding."

Others joined the conversation, with another resident posting: "The said companies such as Tesco and Asda should be fined, the drain on Hall Road always has trolleys in there it's terrible, but nothing ever gets done."

Although others said it wasn't the fault of the supermarkets and that the responsibility falls on to the council to clear the area.

Residents of the estate went on to say that the dumping of trolleys isn't the only anti-social behaviour that has concerned the area in recent days as one claimed that over 300 plants on Sir Henry Cooper Park had been "smashed", just says after they were planted.

They said: "Nothing can be nice around here. Its a shame, because there's some lovely people on this estate who would really like to see the park looking nice and use it. Once again a minority spoiling it. Mindless vandalism."

Other residents say they are "fighting a losing battle" as they report fly tipping, crime and a lack of grass cutting and general upkeep of the area.

Ward Councillor for Orchard Park Rosie Nicola said she contacted Tesco on Hall Road who say that they will remove any abandoned trolleys that are reported to them.

The councillor says she has also advised the supermarket to introduce the magnetic locking system that prevents shoppers from taking trolleys beyond the store perimeter.
