Dismayed walker Mick Parkinson from Hambleton today posted on his social media group today in absolute disgust a photograph of what looked like an entire house clearance on a country path. The mountain of rubble was shared by over 111 people.
In what can be only described as an act of evil Mick stated “Utter disgust is all I can say on the matter when faced with this on our early morning walk along Wardleys Lane this morning”.
Many people commented that the fly tipper will have driven some distance to dump the load, meaning the culprit could be a person from Lytham St Annes which is less than a 30 minutes drive away.
