A SEX doll has become the latest victim of the "Great Brighton Bin Disaster" after it was dumped on the street as strikes continue.

The "lovely lady" was left feeling deflated after being discarded in Lansdowne Place, as mountains of rubbish continue to pile up in the city.

Beth Nicholas spotted the inflatable sex toy while driving and found the scene so funny, that she turned around to snap a picture.

She told The Argus: "The whole situation is pretty disgusting - but at least this made me laugh and see something funny of it all.

"I was actually driving past it and had to turn back and photograph it.

"It actually made a welcome change to seeing furniture and mattresses piled up on top of the bin bags."

It comes as Brighton’s Cityclean, recycling, commercial waste and HGV drivers strike for two-weeks amid a row over pay and working conditions.

On Monday, Brighton and Hove City Council met those behind the walk out, but confirmed that strike action by refuse collectors would still take place.

Fast forward to Friday, the GMB union met with Green Party councillors again to discuss the ongoing dispute.

Deputy leader of the council and Green Party councillor for Brunswick and Adelaide Hannah Clare said the meeting was “productive” and another meeting has been agreed for next week.

“It is positive to be working together on a way forward,” she said. “We have agreed to meet again early next week.

Yesteday, Brighton and Hove City Council made an offer to the union including additional pay, but claim that union representatives "walked out of the room before discussing this offer" with the council.

Should the union and the council fail to reach an agreement, residents could face four week's worth of rubbish building up on Brighton and Hove's streets.
