Gran under siege as pigeons cover garden with poo and nest near solar panels

A shielding nan is under siege by several pigeons who are attracted to the solar panels on top of her house.

Louise Johnson, 48, who lives in Hull, says her house has become a seagull nesting site after the council installed solar panels on her roof.

She described the situation as a "nightmare come true" as the animals have used her garden as a toilet since 2017.

Ms Johnson, who suffers from multiple health conditions, said she is "disgusted" with the state of her garden and the pigeons that "poo all over everything."

The shielding disabled woman added that she's spent "hundreds because of the poo" as the acid from the faeces wrecked her decking.

Ms Johnson told HullLive: "I'm absolutely disgusted and having pigeons fly at me in the garden and poo all over everything, it's a nightmare come true.

"I've spent hundreds because of the poo, from painting the decking where the acid has ruined it, as well as having to bin loads of items that have been pooed on.

"I can't hang the washing out either because it will just be pooed on."

Sadly, Ms Johnson also feels as though she is a poo-isner in her own home because she can't sit outside.

The 48-year-old says she is also unable to invite her own grandson over as the pair can't go outside because of the mess.

She said: "I want to sit outside but I can't because of it, and can't even have my grandson over now – I feel like a prisoner in my own home."

Ms Johnson is upset that Hull City Council haven't fixed the situation, adding that she doesn't want to move and just wants her life back.

She said: "I'm upset and angry with the council for not fixing it," she said.

"I've paid for every grain of soil in that garden and all the plants and decorations in there, so why should I have to move?

"I want this problem solving and want my garden and my life back."

Daily Star Online has approached Hull City Council for comment.
