This above photograph shows rubbish that has been dumped behind the Fish Shop in Simpasturegate.
This has been reported to Durham County Council twice, with no response from the authorities. I am also aware of other shop owners who have unsuccessfully tried to find the culprits, to no avail. I fear we will eventually get an infestation of vermin if it is not removed.
