The landlord Mr Paul Higgins-Drysdale who lives in Hampshire, complained that the rubbish was the fault of nearby residents and claimed he had spent hundreds of pounds having dumped items removed from the yards of his Burnley properties, only to find the problem repeated within days, the court heard.
