Flytippers target same Fenland road two days in a row

Volunteers collected 20 bags of flytipped items on a remote road – and returned to the same spot a day later as even more rubbish had been dumped there.
Members of Wisbech Street Pride cleared the rubbish at New Drove, last week.
Items were left on the side of the road and included children’s toys, books and DVDs.
When the rubbish was collected, it was taken away by Fenland District Council.
But the next day, volunteers returned to the same road because more binbags filled with rubbish had been dumped there.
