Fly tipping by the lorry load

Fly-tipping in Bradmore Lane reached a new scale this week with what appears to be a lorry load of household rubbish dumped in the gateway to a field.

A large load, including a sofa, chair, carpet, kitchen appliances and other evidence of a house-clearance have been tipped in a heap spreading ten metres square.

Tyre marks and the spread of the rubbish suggests that a tipping truck has been used - and was reversed well into the field - in this latest, and perhaps the worst, example of fly tipping in recent years. Bradmore Lane has become of the area's black spots for the disposal of household and garden waste.

The North Mymms Green Belt Society has regularly called on the local authority to take urgent action to limit the areas where people can illegally dispose of their rubbish.
