THIS was the scene in a local country lane after a number of old baths and other debris were dumped there.

The fly-tipping was in Holtsmere End Lane in Redbourn last Tuesday evening and the rubbish included shattered glass which was scattered across the road.

The rubbish is due to be cleared by St Albans District Council contractors within seven days.

Environmental enforcement officers at the council visited the site but they were unable to find any evidence about where the rubbish had come from.

The council is now appealing for the public's help in tracing those responsible for the fly-tipping.

A spokesperson said: "It seems to be that it belongs to someone who is doing a lot or refurbishment work, so possibly someone in the area of Redbourn."

Anyone with information should call the litter hotline on 01727 819285 or email clientservices@stalbans.gov.uk

There have been no prosecutions against flytippers since 2002 but in the last six months one individual has been cautioned and three fixed-penalty notices have been issued for minor incidents.
