A group of Mansfield residents say their neighbourhood has been left ‘like a bomb site’ because of a lack of action from land owners and council chiefs.

Victoria Street resident Harvey Hunt nominated Victoria Court and the nearby former Pyramid Products factory for Chad’s Sort It Out campaign, where residents can point the finger at eyesores and other problems on their doorsteps.
He said: “Nothing has changed since they took over. When my brother comes to visit, he says it’s worse than Beirut down here.
Have any of these people actually visited Beirut? Just curious.
