This is the home of horrors where disgusted builders discovered years of pigeon droppings plastered across the walls and floors of a derelict Anfield home.
They made the vile discovery after walking into the terraced property near the Anfield stadium development, which has been empty for years and due for renovation.
Up to 40 pigeons had moved in and deposited a generation of mess all over the building.
Specialised Cleaning Services, a Preston-based company, was called in had to carry out a deep clean and Manager Nathan Brennan told the ECHO: “They are doing a lot of houses up in this area and this one is getting renovated too.
“The roof was in a bad shape and loads of pigeons got in. They’ve left a lot of mess. It’s one of the worst states I’ve ever seen in a home.”
Mr Brennan led a three-man team over five days to clear out the pigeon mess.
The workers wore full body-suits, breathing masks and gloves to treat the property
Mr Brennan said: “The roof space of the two houses was connected so the birds could get from one home to the other.
“Clearing up the mess is a case of sweeping and then treating – there’s no other way to do it.
“It was filthy. Even though I was wearing a mask, my face was black from all the muck.”
Derelict homes in the area are being given a new lease of life thanks to the £260m Anfield regeneration project.
This scheme also includes the expansion of the stadium’s Main Stand, a new public square containing commercial and retail premises and a public space in honour of theHillsborough victims.
