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.

"This problem won't go away unless we do something about it."

Fed-residents are meeting to address the issue.
