We counted all the furniture on the streets of Selly to find out which road is the messiest

Surprisingly, mattresses weren’t the most common


Stumbling home from Fab, it's easy to see a sofa on the pavement and think it'd be a great place to rest. They're everywhere. Which got us thinking: exactly how many pieces of discarded furniture are there around Selly? And which is the messiest?

On the five main streets of Selly Oak there were a grand total of 32 pieces of furniture.

After walking around Selly here's a breakdown of what we found on Hubert, Dawlish, Tiverton, Heeley and Teignmouth Road.

Hubert Road was a close second to Dawlish. We counted eight pieces of furniture on the road and Hubert also had a total of four mattresses, meaning it was the winner of most mattresses on a street.
