WASTE has been illegally dumped ruining the 'beautiful countryside' near Buckinghamshire.

The local authority is investigating a case of illegal flytipping near Piddington, Oxfordshire, which lies close to the Bucks border.

Bucks Council said there is evidence in the dumped waste which is being investigated further.

Thomas Broom, Buckinghamshire Council’s Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Environment said: “This is another example of our beautiful countryside being blighted by criminals who simply don’t care but we have eyes everywhere and our enforcement team examines every instance in depth so we can try and catch the culprits.

"Whether you are the person who dumped the waste or the person who it belonged to, if we can get the evidence, we will seek to prosecute.

"Fly-tipping will not be tolerated in Buckinghamshire.”
