AT around 9am on May 18, the Taunton Deane recycling team called to collect the recycling material from our boxes.

I looked out of my bathroom window to ascertain whether the boxes had been emptied and to my horror, witnessed two of the council team walk down the driveway and urinate beside my garage.

Following the council's ultimatum, I placed my food waste in the brown box, put my other items neatly in the green box in front of the property, and this is the thanks I receive.

I made a formal complaint to the council, who suggested that I should register with them in case I wished to send further messages.

Presumably they are anticipating several more complaints from their council tax payers.
