A DENTIST says he is at the end of his tether following years of flytipping outside his practice.
Family practitioner Allan Gradus, 69, has had to endure faeces, urine, beds and boxes in the alleyway next to his practice in High Road, Wembley, on an almost daily basis since at least 2004.
This week in an adjoining car park, there were more than 50 bags of rubbish piled up and Mr Gradus, who has worked in the building since 1968, said the problem had begun to attract rats and mice.
He said: "It's absolutely disgusting, why should my patients have to walk past this on their way to my well-kept practice?
"I have spoken to the council's environmental health department and the car park leaseholder but I feel as if I'm banging my head against a brick wall.
"It's not only unsightly, it's become a health hazard and could be a source of infection."
The alleyway is cleaned by Brent Council, but Mr Gradus can often be seen scrubbing the area with peroxide and water himself.
In February, returning from a week's holiday he found the 15-metre stretch completely filled with rubbish.
A spokeswoman for the Wembley branch of Reed Employment, which holds the lease of the car park, claimed it was not the firm's responsibility to clear up fly-tipped rubbish.
She said: "It's the landlord's responsibility and we have tried to get in touch about it but they are not interested."
However, DMJ Levy, a management agent acting for the landlord, also denied responsibility.
Rachel Gardner, Brent Council spokeswoman, said: "This was a problem in 2006. A letter was sent to the owners to clear up the land. They didn't do it so the council cleared it up and sent them a bill.
"In April we had another complaint from a resident. We arranged a clean-up day in May and we will send another notice to the owner telling them to clear the land.
"If they don't comply the council will clear it and send them a bill."
