Men who drink outside to a block flats on a daily basis are making people’s lives a “misery”, according to a resident.
The Comet has been told that a group of between three and five men drink regularly during the day next to The Towers in Southgate, Stevenage, often making noise and leaving empty rubbish on the floor.
One resident, who asked to remain anonymous, said: “They have been drinking there for months and leave lots of empty beer cans everywhere which creates an eyesore.
“One of them has a dog which barks and they are aggressive to anyone who walks past. They shout and swear at people who go anywhere near them and are making our lives a misery.
“I hope the council and police do something to move them anyway and leave us in peace.”
