Representatives from the borough council, the police and street wardens will be on hand to answer questions.

Flytipping, refuse collections and parking troubles in the town centre's residential streets are on the agenda.

In a post on social media, Niall said: "If you live or work in the Mounts of the NN1 area of town, these images are all too familiar.

"If you want to try and do something rather than just moan about it, get down to The Lab. This will be a chance to have your voice heard and knock some heads together.

Fed-residents are meeting to address the issue.
