The trolleys were taken from B&M in Weston Favell this week.

"It's dangerous. In the summer kids sit in them and roll down the slopes we have here.

"I counted five trolleys from the roundabout at Lumbertubs to Rillwood Court when I was driving. If I was walking I would have probably seen about 20.

"The residents have been trying to do something about this for years."

The notice at B&M read: "Unfortunately all our trolleys have been stolen. We have ordered replacements and are awaiting their arrival. Thank you for your patience. B&M Weston Favell."

Chair of Brookside Residents Association Dianne Finnie would like to see the trolleys cleared up around Weston Favell for good.

B&M have been approached for comment.
