Council Seek Information on Largest Fly-tip in the City for Years
Brighton and Hove City Council have launched a desperate appeal for any information residents may have on the largest incident of fly-tipping the city has seen in years.
The Council took to Facebook and Twitter this morning to voice their concerns on the incident. It is believed the crime happened at around 9.15pm last night on both Whitehawk Hill Road, and the track to the allotments besides St John The Baptist primary school.
Pictures show the devastating damage left by criminals, with scrap metal, plastic, large planks of wood and plant waste. It raises concern of the threat it may pose to local wildlife, as well as a hazard to young children who use the road everyday to get to school.
The Council tweeted “Can you help us catch criminals who’ve carried out the largest flytip in the city in years?” Hoping to spread the news quickly via social media.
The incident will come of great distress to many Brighton & Hove residents who feel the accumulation of rubbish in the city after mass tourist events this summer is one that urgently needs to be addressed. It is without doubt a city who strives for sustainability will be disappointed by these pictures.
If you think you have any information on this incident, please contact Brighton and Hove City Council immediately on 01273 294377
