THESE pictures show mountains of rubbish as tall as some people growing across the city as Brighton enters its seventh day of bin strikes.

Human waste, sex dolls and leftover food are among the rubbish piling up on residential streets as Cityclean workers continue to strike amid a row over pay and working conditions.

Pictures taken from across Brighton show the scale of the crisis dubbed the "Great Brighton Bin Disaster", with black bin bags filled with waste stacked high.

Mounds of rubbish have appeared outside shops, houses and supermarkets as desperate residents try to dispose of their waste.

Last week, 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.
