Trouble in paradise! Welsh ‘Millionaires’ Row’ blighted by ‘dirty pig’ fly tippers who have dumped mounds of used carpets atop a hill overlooking their £1m plus properties

Residents living on a seaside Millionaires’ Row in Wales have been left outraged after a beauty spot above their homes was blighted by ‘dirty pig’ fly-tippers.

Dozens of used carpets were left scattered across the Great Orme hills, which overlooks Llandudno in north Wales, as the stunning area was transformed into a dumping ground.

The discarded carpets, which were spotted recently by walkers, were left above a string of gated detached houses on Llys Helyg Drive – also known as Millionaires’ Row due to its pricey homes.

Llys Helyg Drive was revealed as one of the most expensive streets in Wales last year, with the average home costing £1,153,000. 

It is one of the most sought after addresses on the north Wales coast thanks to its luxury millionaire homes, breathtaking sunsets and its proximity to the spectacular limestone headland, Great Orme. 

Footage of the dumped carpet waste, which was shared to a local Facebook page, has sparked fury among millionaire residents who described the behaviour as ‘appalling and terrible’.

One posted: ‘For people not to appreciate such a beautiful place is beyond me.’

Others commented on social media after footage of the fly-tipping, titled ‘dirty pigs’ was posted online.

One woman wrote: ‘My god what is wrong with people? You should be ashamed of yourselves. Probably easier to take to the tip than drive up the Orme to dump your rubbish. Shame on you!’

Another said: ‘Absolutely appalling.’

A third woman said: ‘Terrible behaviour.’

The Halifax annual survey of the most expensive streets in Britain found that Llys Helyg Drive was only behind Benar Headland in Pwllheli where the average price of a house is £1,345,000 and Hanley Cwrt, in Usk, where it is £1,153,000.

Fly-tipping Action Wales says there were 40,000 incidents of fly-tipping reported in the country last year – costing taxpayers around £1.83million. 

Great Orme has not seen fly-tipping often but earlier this month the council had to remove parts of a fence and shed which had been thrown into a hedge.

The iconic headland is famous for its wandering herd of Kashmiri Goats who notoriously leave their hillside home to wreak havoc on the nearby town.

The goats have previously been seen running wild, stampeding into gardens and fighting in the street – but neighbours believe they are not responsible for the fly-tipping.

The latest incident feeds into a wider scourge of fly-tipping across all parts of the UK.

During the financial year 2022/23, local councils in England responded to more than one million fly-tipping incidents, with 60 per cent involving household waste.

The national cost of clearing up fly tipped rubbish in 2023 was estimated at nearly £64million. The cost of actions taken to catch and punish fly tippers was more than £18.7million. 

Over the weekend, heroic villagers took matters into their own hands by catching two fly-tippers red-handed by using their cars to trap the culprits until the police arrived to arrest them.

The men, who arrived in white vans in broad daylight, had started throwing black bin bags and pipes onto the road in the Packington Estate near Meriden, Warwickshire, when furious passers-by spotted them.

While the culprits were hoping to go unnoticed they could not escape after angry locals formed a blockade around their vehicles, preventing them from fleeing the scene.

The quick-thinking residents then called Warwickshire Police who turned up within minutes to arrest the men for what they said was ‘some of the worst fly-tipping [the force] had seen in a long time.’

This came days after Cotswolds locals blasted ‘disgusting’ fly-tipping after Jeremy Clarkson was seen using a JCB digger to clear up rubbish from his Diddly Squat farm.

Fuming residents living in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, said it had become a ‘growing issue’ in recent weeks and months, with the former Top Gear star also having to to get involved.
