Removers shared the state of a filthy house that took three vans of rubbish to empty, and which someone was living in just one week prior.
Pictures have revealed a house absolutely covered in rubbish, dirt, and even ‘bottles of urine’ that removers had to remove.
Senior Waste Removals were called in to clean up the home, describing it as the ‘worst they have ever dealt with’ in the five years the company has been operating.
The clean up took four men and a total of seven hours to complete, with all of the rubbish filling three industrial-size vans.
Owner of Senior Waste Removals, Warren Senior, spoke to the Manchester Evening News. He said: “It’s the worst house we’ve ever seen in five years of doing this and we’ve done some nasty jobs.
“I got a call from the private landlord, they wanted me to go down and have a look to get an idea of how much it would cost to remove the waste. They just told me it was ‘quite bad’.”
Despite seeing some sights in his line of work, even Warren was shocked at just how ‘bad’ the house was. He struggled to even get inside as rubbish blocked the door.
Warren told the MEN: “I struggled to open the door because of all the food wrappers, rubbish and flies coming out. I could tell from that moment that it was going to be bad.
“I’ve got quite a strong stomach and I’ve never not wanted to go in and price up a job, but it took me five minutes to gear myself up and get inside.
“The front door opened to the kitchen and it was just waist-high full of rubbish, all of the appliances were completely covered.
“I walked into the hallway and found a set of stairs, I had to climb up to the front room which was covered in flies.
“The main room had couches but they were in a state and to the left there was a bathroom but that was a mess as well.
“I had to climb over piles of rubbish to get to the bedroom.”
Warren added: “Someone was actually living in that property a week before. Someone was actually living in that.
“There were bottles of urine around the place that had just been left there.
“What’s also quite strange is that when I went up to the third floor, I opened a door and there was absolutely nothing. Just an empty room.
“Maybe they weren’t very mobile and just lived on the one floor. Clearly there are some mental health problems at play.”
But rubbish wasn’t the only surprise in this house. Warren said: “The lads went into the kitchen and started moving things around.
“They uncovered a nest of around 20 mice. Luckily my guys are used to this, we work with Bury and Bolton Council on jobs and deal with a lot of rats.
“They just had the task of bagging up all the waste. It took a full day: four guys, seven hours and three van-loads. That’s a lot for us. They had just used it as one giant bin.”
The work ended up costing six times the usual amount for a removal company, racking up thousands of pounds worth of rubbish to remove.
The house was a shell after they left. Warren added: “We change the identity of the house.
“We lift everything up, including the floor coverings. Now it’s ready for the landlord to do whatever changes need to be made so someone else can move in.”
10-year-old writes Christmas list with Gucci shoes, Macbook, iPhone and £3k in cash
Not much then…
A ten-year-old’s Christmas list has gone viral after she asked for an iPhone 11, Chanel purse, Go Pro and plenty more.
A dad shared his kid’s handwritten Christmas list complete with nice little love hearts over on Twitter with the caption: “My 10-year-old daughter must be out of her mind with this Christmas list”
Among some of the priciest of gifts, she’s asked for a Go Pro, Mac Book Air, air pods, Gucci Sliders and $4,000 in cash.
She did ask for some pretty normal gifts too like laundry detergent, new bedding and an alarm clock.
She also asked for some clothes, make-up, perfume, new shoes, earrings, jewellery and dolls.
Her very optimistic list went viral last year racking up 127k, likes.
The comments for her hopeful wish list are hilarious, one person wrote ‘I’m really curious about the glue, food coloring, and laundry detergent listed together…’
Another added: “Lmfaoooooooooo she got expensive taste. You got it tho! Spend something lol”
The dad replied to one comment that asked ‘is there anything else’, he said: “Shorty got big dreams!!! She gone have to work real hard to get the lifestyle she wants.”
Another pointed out the cute spelling mistakes like ‘asenchal oil’ because this kid is gonna need a nice relaxing bath after opening all these.
Another commented: “She gone need that alarm clock to wake her up from this dream.”
Dream big kid!
Man who tweeted ‘I am not ok’ receives thousands of responses from around the world
This is wonderful to see.
Edmund O’Leary shared a simple message on Twitter over the weekend, reaching out for people to say hello, little did he know how far his message would go.
Edmund caught international attention after tweeting about his mental health during the pandemic.
After living alone throughout the entire pandemic, Edmund found himself feeling rock bottom so he took to Twitter to reach out to people, he wrote: “I am not ok. Feeling rock bottom. Please take a few seconds to say hello if you see this tweet. Thank you.”
He has been flooded with support from people all across the world, and his Tweet has racked up over 100,000 replies.
Edmund appeared on This Morning earlier today to discuss the aftermath of his tweet which he revealed has been ‘phenomenal’.
Ruth asked Edmun what led him to the tweet, he said: “On Friday I was feeling very depressed, I was feeling more and more depressed as the hours were passing, feeling very isolated, and I just felt there wasn’t much more I could take, and I just reflected on a friend of mine on Twitter, a Twitter friend that has mental health problems.
“Sometimes he tweets before he goes to bed ‘says hi if theres anyone out there who can say goodnight’, I always acknowledge his tweet”.
“I was just thinking if it works for him it may work for me.”
Edmund said he’s had so many private messages too. He added: “I’ve had many men send me private messages as well as normal tweets to say that they could not do what I did.
“They just don’t have the courage to do so, and they said you’re a courageous man for doing so. They were applauding me.
Edmund then offered some heartfelt advice to people, in particular men, who are struggling with mental health problems: “Try to reach out for help, don’t feel alone, we are in for a pretty awful winter by all accounts, so reach out for help, reach out to loved ones, seek medical help if necessary.”
If you are feeling lonely in the pandemic or need help with your mental health, head to Every Mind Matters for more support or information.
Video of grandma dropping baby to save falling prosecco glass sparks fierce debate
Did she do the right thing?
A video of a grandmother who grabbed a prosecco glass and let a baby fall has sparked a huge debate online on whether she did the right thing.
Originally the video was shared to be humourous, with the caption: “And Grandmother of the year award goes to…”
The woman, who can be seen in the video holding a baby up against a table, grabs the glass off the child and in doing so removed her arm which was supporting the child up.
The little one inevitably falls on the floor.
The internet is in a pretty fierce debate if she did the right thing.
Some people are claiming that she did the right thing by grabbing the glass, which could have potentially shattered on the floor and caused a serious injury.
One person wrote: “To be fair, if the glass broke that could have seriously hurt the baby.”
Another added: “If the glass fell with the baby, it would have broken and the baby would have been hurt. She did the right thing.”
However, some people are saying the grandmother was ‘irresponsible’. One person replied to the tweet with a picture of a woman smiling as she throws a baby in the air.
A second said: “She. Was. Holding. Up. The. Baby. If the glass was already gone, she should have kept holding the baby. Neither would have been an issue if she had some control over the toddler grabbing a glass of alcohol. She did literally all the worst things. Yes everyone survived.”
A third wrote: “Why she let the baby get that close to the glass in the first place? like the baby had ahold of it and everything.”
Another tried to defuse the situation, pointing out that no one was harmed and that’s the priority: “That could have gone very badly. One of those things that happen in the blink of an eye. We all should just be happy with the outcome and leave it at that.”
