Appeal to find fly tippers

Angry Erewash Borough Council officers have appealed for the public’s help to track down those responsible for major flytipping incidents in the area.

The council had to organise specialist removal of a large amount of tyres that were found dumped at Stanton Gate in Sandiacre and in Long Eaton which furious officers said were some of the worst cases of local flytipping in recent history.

Cllr Barbara Harrison, lead member for the environment, said: “Residents should not have to pay for the removal of material which seems to have come from businesses, especially with excellent disposal facilities at Ilkeston.”

Anyone with information should call 0115 9072244 ext 3863.
