Talk about living like a slob! Landlord Chris Dowling found out - the hard way - that a tenant in his property didn't believe in throwing out the garbage:
DIRTY tenant turned his home into a rubbish tip by cramming it with more than 1000 burger and Kentucky Fried Chicken cartons. Landlord Chris Dowling couldn't believe his eyes, or nose, when confronted with the squalor the man had left behind.
The mountain of burger cartons, bags and other rubbish in the living room of the £100,000 flat was so huge that Chris struggled to force his way through it. More McDonald's and KFC cartons were piled high around the bed.
And when Chris made it to the bathroom, he found that the tenant had left a giant heap of cigarette ends on the sink. Chris, 57, said: "In 15 years of running properties I've never come across anything like this - and we see all sorts. "The tenant had also been smoking without opening windows and there were nicotine stains dripping from the walls. "It smelled like a giant ashtray. I can't imagine how anyone can live like that."
