Fly-tipping in lane 'is beyond a joke'
FLY tipping is blighting the lives of residents in Sandhurst Lane.
Fridges, washing machines and other debris was dumped in the road on Tuesday morning – so much so the road was blocked.
One resident, who didn't want to be named, said: "We have had fly tipping problems for years, but it has never been as bad as this.
"It really is beyond a joke and it needs to be stopped."

Tewkesbury Borough Council's lead member for clean and green environment Councillor Jim Mason said: "This incident of fly tipping was particularly dangerous as it had been dumped in the middle of a road. Fortunately, the police were able to move the items to a safer area and our contractor will be clearing the items today.
"Fly tipping is illegal and it's something we take very seriously. To help combat the issue, we strongly encourage our residents to report any cases to us. If people are unsure what to do with larger household items, the household recycling Centres at Wingmoor Farm and in Hempsted can take fridge freezers, CDs, and many more items free of charge."
