A 10FT pile of stinking rubbish is plaguing a Hatfield town centre alleyway and a councillor is calling for action.

Labour stalwart Colin Croft believes someone could die in the flats above, as fires are often started within the waste.

He said: "The problem is getting worse and there will be a fatality if we don't do anything about it.

"It's a big eyesore.
