On Monday 3 July police were called to the old Tilery site off Pepper Street and caught two individuals unloading a large amount of illegal waste. The men were arrested and the wagon, a JCB and a car were seized. The following morning two further wagons loaded with waste turned up. The drivers were arrested and their vehicles seized. Tons more waste was discovered on the site and action is being taken to remove it. Prosecutions are expected. Local residents are to be congratulated on exposing this serious offence.
We urge local residents to keep off the site which is in a very dangerous condition.
