The five black bin bags were left on the front garden of the historic Lynn Road property, opposite the entrance of Tinkers Drove.

Owner Sidney Imafidon is currently restoring the Grade-II Listed property and interested parties can follow his progress on the ‘Friends of Ely House Wisbech’ Facebook group.

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.”
