Bin bags obstructing a footway on Somerset Road, Edgbaston
Unusually for a large city in the UK Birmingham doesn't have wheelie bins and still has a weekly rubbish collection. When this photo was taken the refuse collectors were on strike over pay. That doesn't excuse heaping the bags up across the already hazardous footway when there was plenty of space alongside.
