Yesterday (September 29), he posted: “Whoever thought it was a good idea to dump five bags of rubbish on the front garden of Ely House directly opposite Tinkers Drove, you left your name and address in one of the bags.

“I suggest you come and collect them before I get the authorities involved.”

Afterwards Sidney said he visited the address and the person denied carrying out the act - but the majority of the rubbish was later removed.
