A landlord in Coatbridge is undertaking a project to improve a close in North Lanarkshire which has been plagued by "disgusting"living conditions.

The Airdrie &Coatbridge Advertiser reported that the residents of Torriden Court have suffered from the effects of the poor conditions - which include rubbish piled high in the communal bin area that has attracted rats and other vermin.

While the newspaper reported that the 11 rental properties appear to have been neglected by their private landlords, one has taken it upon himself to improve the standard of living at the close.

According to letting agent 24/7 spokesman Andrew McQueen, the landlords who own property at the site are "very conscientious".

The council has threatened to take "stronger action"against the landlords and tenants who are causing problems for those who are using the system appropriately at the close.

One way to make an improvement is for landlords to ensure tenants are using the wheeled rubbish bins in the correct way, David Cullen, the council's cleansing operations business manager, told the newspaper.

North Lanarkshire Council has pledged to spend a total of £58 million improving properties in the region this year.
