Over the weekend, a big industrial fly-tip was deposited down a country road near Hinckley. A dishwasher, outdated kitchen equipment, and a children’s play structure were among the items dumped on Green Lane, near Barton in the Beans. Plastic bags, milk cartons, and bottles, including one labeled “Leicester,” were among the debris, as were wooden slats and shattered tiles. Fly-tippers dumped their rubbish on the brink of a layby, spilling part of it onto the road.
