Dozens of pigeons living in the roof above a block of flats in Bletchley are making life misery for residents.

Jeffery Allsop who lives in the block of flats at Serpentine Court estate said he had been plagued with the problem for two years.

He said he complained about the pigeons in 2011 when the birds started nesting in a hole in the roof outside some of the flats – causing a noise nuisance, leaving lots of droppings and occasionally flying through the properties.

He said: “There is a big hole right outside my flat and it is full of pigeons. There are lots of droppings right outside.

“It’s OK when the weather is cold because you have a reason to keep your doors shut. However, it’s getting hotter and we won’t want to have our front door open.

“I have reported it but nothing has been done now for around two years.”

A council spokesman said: “Mr Allsop reported a problem with pigeons to the housing team recently. The soffit needs replacing to block up the holes where the pigeons are roosting, this will be undertaken at the earliest opportunity. Mr Allsop is being kept informed of the situation.”
