Rub­bish dumped in road

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

A coun­try lane in Ash­ford had to be closed be­cause of rub­bish dumped by fly-tip­pers.

Cheese­man’s Green Lane was cov­ered in de­bris, in­clud­ing bricks, plaster­board, rub­bish bags, car­pet dis­cards and sheets on Tues­day morn­ing.

The rub­bish, which has been coned off, nearly cov­ers the al­ready nar­row road, mean­ing cars are un­able to pass through. Road clo­sure signs have now been put in ei­ther end un­til the de­bris is re­moved.

Fed-up res­i­dents say that rub­bish is con­stantly be­ing dumped along the coun­try road.

One woman, who asked not to be named, said: “It’s al­ways hap­pen­ing but this time it’s been tipped all over the road, not just along the sides.

“It makes you want to camp out and catch who­ever is do­ing it, it’s all over the place.”

Fly-tip­ping is a crim­i­nal of­fence pun­ish­able by a fine of up to £50,000 or 12 months’ im­pris­on­ment.

The road clo­sure signs re­mained in place yes­ter­day (Wed­nes­day) morn­ing but the rub­bish had been re­moved.
