Bin collections: County 'plagued with flies and maggots'

Controversial monthly bin collections are being rolled out across a Welsh county on Monday - the first area in Wales and England to make the move.

Waste destined for landfill will now only be collected once a month in Conwy county following a trial.

The council said it could save £390,000 a year and concerns had been addressed.

But it has been met with controversy, with residents and councillors calling it "unfair" and claiming the trial brought more rats, seagulls and flies.
