Fly Tipping At Beauty Spot

One of the worst cases of fly-tipping in Torridge has been found at the edge of a cycle path near Holsworthy.

Horse riders found the pile of rubbish, which included baths, toilets, sinks and other tiles and rubble, at the side of a path known as Lamb's Lane.

Councillor Richard Brown from Torridge District Council said: "This is the first time I've seen it this bad, but there have been one or two other examples in the area.  It's something that must be stamped out, it's very, very dangerous."

As well as being unsightly, flytipping makes an area dangerous for walkers, pets and horses, as well as causing problems for local wildlife.

Torridge District Council want to hear from us if we have any information which may help to identify the person responsible - and they say they are not afraid to prosecute.
