Eight cartons of rotting food have been dumped in a layby just yards from a private school.
Putrid chicken sits on top of the pile in a cardboard crate, while rancid rice and decaying vegetables in black plastic containers are piled on top of each other on the pavement along Rochester Road, Higham.
The spot, near Gad's Hill School, has become a haven for fly tippers according to one local, who did not wish to be named.
He said: "I saw the food yesterday. The sun was beating down and there were flies everywhere. I mentioned it to a council employee who was working nearby. He reported it to his boss and I reported it online but so far nothing has been done. It's disgusting and it's a spot where parents pick up their children from Gad's Hill.
"The layby itself has become a disgrace recently. A trailer was dumped their after Christmas and a coach in February and despite repeatedly reporting both to the relevant authorities they've done nothing. What goes on inside that coach would make your hair curl. The place is now a no go area."
He added he had seen drug dealing and other antisocial behaviour taking place and the police had actually been inside once but so far nothing has been done.
Gravesham council has been approached for comment.
