Eight tons

If you are a hoarder, spare a thought for those who one day will have to clear up.

Meliha Öner, an elderly woman, was discovered two months after she had died in Istanbul. Neighbours started to complain about the unpleasant odours emanating from her house.

Police investigated but decided they needed to clear away what turned out to be eight tons of rubbish first of all.

Her body was discovered under the heaps. A neighbour said that she had lived there for two decades, and lost her mind after losing all her money. She began to collect and bring home trash she found in the streets.
