Investigations are underway to find the person who dumped a pile of rubbish on a country road leading to the A14 - partially blocking the carriageway.

The fly-tipping was spotted on Brightwell Road just outside Kirton.

The rubbish was found by local resident Steve Smith around 6.30am on Wednesday, June 23, and he has branded whoever dumped it as "lazy".

“To find this rubbish fly tipped in the layby this morning is just disgusting, lazy and there is no need for it," Mr Smith said.

"Now someone else has to clear their rubbish at our cost, unbelievable.”

“Fly-tipping is completely unacceptable and it is hard to understand the mentality and thought process of why some individuals think this is normal behaviour.

"It is never okay to just dump waste, expecting others to clear it up. We work really hard to keep our towns and countryside free of rubbish and fly-tipping is not helpful nor is it necessary as there are ways to legally dispose of this waste.

“As with all fly-tipping incidents, we will be undertaking a full investigation to try and find those responsible.
