Campaigners claim to film fly tippers
Signs have been posted around a local fly tipping black spot warning that the area is being monitored with cameras.
The lane, just off the north east side of Woodside Lane leading between the A1000 and Wildhill has three areas where signs have been nailed to trees.
They warn fly tippers that they are being watched.
The sign reads, due to continual and indiscriminate fly tipping, infrared cameras have now been placed in this area to capture all perpetrators.
The message continues, our apologies to innocent parkers!
It is signed by the president of the Wildhill Green and Clean Association, Mr V.J. Lanty.
The reason why the association has taken the action litters the area. An old three piece suite, carpets and car tyres are just some of the items that have been discarded by the side of the lane.
The North Mymms Green Belt Society recently called on the local authority to take urgent action to limit the areas where people can illegally dispose of their rubbish.
Anyone who sees anyone fly tipping is urged to call the authority on 01707-357000 or, if the fly tipping is in the Hertsmere District, you should ring 020-8207-7480.
The Community Policing Unit at Hatfield Police station 01707 638100, would also like to hear from anyone who sees people fly tipping.
