And they say Horton residents feel completely ignored by Telford & Wrekin Council, which is allowing all kinds of pollution from smells to noise and lighting so bright it makes it look "like a football stadium".

Resident Lee Baker, of Horton Lane, said: "The basic issue is the amount of businesses that are being built up and surrounding the residential area.

"We are surrounded by the Hortonwood Industrial Estate with all its smells, light pollution and noise. We are literally surrounded by all the development."

Mr Baker says that he feels "tortured" by the sounds of trucks constantly reversing, the dragging of crates.
