Mounds of rubbish littered the city streets following a city centre Christmas market.
Newcastle residents have hit out at the delay in cleaning up after the popular Continental Market finished on Saturday following a two-week run at Grey’s Monument.
The event attracts lots of shoppers and is popular with locals but many feel the messy aftermath puts a dampener on things.
One Newcastle resident, who lives and works in the city centre, says it is history repeating itself as she complained to the city council following last year’s market.
The 35-year-old, who asked not to be named, said: “I’ve lived and worked in town for the last couple of years and it’s something I have noticed get worse and worse.
“The market is good for the city and it shows how cultural we are but as soon as it’s gone it’s just like ‘oh well, we’ll just leave all that there’.
“It’s no good for business, no good for tourism and it’s no good for residents or people who work in town, the council must appreciate that.”
The continental market was made up of a mix of food stalls and arts and craft stalls that were spread around the Monument and along a short stretch of Grainger Street.
But trading stopped on Saturday and residents woke to find overflowing bins and heaps of rubbish around the area on Sunday morning.
