The pile of white goods were spotted just off Hixberry Lane this morning at about 9.30am by resident Ellen Myring.

She said it was saddening: “It damages the planet with poisonous gas, nonbiodegradable plastic strewn, large plastic and metal blocks which can potentially cause serious injury - not to mention the animals that will consume the rotting food and become ill.

Anyone who spots fly-tipping taking place should contact police on 999. Anything discovered afterwards should be reported to SADC on 01727 809019 or on
