'Rat issues' at unfinished Cefn Mawr housing scheme

A housing development put on hold for a decade has been called a "blight on the community".

Harron Homes said the scheme at Cefn Mawr, Wrexham was left unfinished following the 2007 financial crash.

But residents called the delay "unacceptable" and raised concerns over open sewers, rat infestations and anti-social behaviour.

Mother-of-five Laura O'Donnell, who lives in the estate's only finished house, said in the summer her doors and windows were "black with flies" from a local sewer plant.

"If I was to buy, I wouldn't buy here," she told BBC Wales' Matthew Richards.
