The amount of fly-tipping is on the rise in Bucks, with 27 incidents reported in just in the past week.

The incidents include mounds of earth dumped in the middle of the road in several cases, with Transport for Bucks saying this could indicate it is being left there by the same person or people.

Buckinghamshire County Council’s (BCC) fly-tipping enforcement team is currently investigating the situation.

BCC’s deputy cabinet member for transport, Councillor Paul Irwin, said: “It is very frustrating that we are having to spend money that should be spent on repairing potholes on clearing up illegal fly-tipping instead.

“I would encourage anybody who has any information to get in touch with the enforcement team.”
