Harescombe flytipper watch out - you may have dumped your own details
SOFAS, chairs, paint-pots and lamps have been dumped in Harescombe, just nine months after an identical incident.
Fly-tippers have left their rubbish strewn on the roadside in the village underneath the Welcome to Harescombe sign.
In November last year, building materials, roof tiles and nails were dumped on the same spot.
Brian Stanley, chairman of Harescombe Parish Council, said: "Last time the culprit was caught because they left a receipt for a mobile phone they had bought in their litter, so they were tracked.

"And I believe there are also documents in this latest lot that will be able to trace it back to the culprit."
He added: "All we want is to keep the village clean and tidy.
"This is the first time this has happened since November, so publicising it definitely helps. I think it scares people off.
"The facilities in Stroud and Gloucester and the services they provide are so good there should be no need to fly-tip, but some people still feel like they have to do it."
Officers from Stroud District Council have visited the site and, despite the rubbish still being there at the time of going to press, it should be removed today.
A spokesman for Stroud District Council said: "We take all instances of fly-tipping very seriously.
"Once we are informed of incidents we check the waste for evidence which may help us track down culprits, and clear the rubbish away as soon as we can.
"When we find evidence we prosecute."
Last week The Citizen reported fly-tipping at the car boot site at Hempsted Meadows.
Tyres, toilets, bin bags, food packaging, tins and cardboard were reported as being strewn across the site on a daily basis, while fly-tippers targeted the site too.
Fly-tippers caught in the act can face fines up to £50,000.
