FLY-TIPPERS have been attacked for dumping their rubbish in a country lane near Denholme.

The dozen or more black plastic sacks of waste were dumped on Whalley Lane.

According to village resident David Lightfoot, who sent in the picture, fly-tippers regularly dump their rubbish in the lay-by near the Doe Park reservoir.

In an impassioned plea he called on the dumpers to take their rubbish to one of Bradford Council's household waste recycling centres instead of littering the countryside.

He said: "Please find attached a picture of the latest example of the acts of total morons.

"Those from the locality will no doubt recognise it as Whalley Lane in the village of Denholme.

"Those locals will no doubt tell you that this is a regular occurrence in the area and we are fed up with this sort of anti-social behaviour in our village.

"Do us all a favour and dump elsewhere preferably at one of the many waste transfer stations in this area of Bradford. There are four within four miles of the village."
