Villagers in Lancashire say that their rural idyll has been destroyed by a 25ft-high hillside mud being dumped near their homes.

Residents of the village of Lower Darwen are furious over the mountain & # 39; created by workers who build a Mercedes service center for trucks.

They say that the earth with a length of 600 feet blocks sunlight, obstructs vision and damages their gardens.

Homeowner Terry Davies, 52, whose house is on the construction site, said: "I recently paid £ 15,000 for a conservatory to enjoy the view, but the only thing I can see now is a huge pile of mud. Before we had a beautiful view of the countryside.

& # 39; I feel that this will really worsen the properties in the area. No one with whom I have spoken is happy, we are all in our arms.

We knew that they had a building permit because signs in the area went up, but nobody expected this.

I have written and rattled the advice, but no one comes back to me, we are left behind in the dark. & # 39;

Another resident, the 77-year-old Ray Winstanley, lived on the road for 20 years, but did not see the signs that went up before the work began.

He said: It seems that the Mexican wall from Donald Trump has come to Lower Darwen. It is huge.

It's terrible, they did not tell us they would put it there. I am really worried about the rain that is flowing, the water will run from the top of the hill to my garden. & # 39;

Darwen Council says they are aware of the resident's concerns and will look into it.

Ciceley Commercials Ltd, which carries out the construction work, has so far made no comment.

Homeowner Terry Davies, whose house is on the construction site, described the hill as a "thorn in the eye."
