Recognise the reclining armchair? Do you recall perhaps visiting a house of a friend or relative?
Such information might be helpful after it was dumped in the open countryside – along with other items.
The fly tipping on the footpath at Tydd St Giles was spotted by a resident. He reported it to the Internal Drainage Board for the North Level Area who look after land in that area.
The man tweeted his concerns to the board with the comment “some utter scumbag has fly tipped in three places. One quite near nesting swans.
“Seems to be dry waste but didn’t go poking at it. Some people are just the lowest life possible”.
The board was quick to respond, sending out workmen to collect most of the fly tipped items within hours.
The board covers an area of 34,000 hectares from Peterborough in the west to Wisbech in the east
