On March 31 Virginia Fano shared the photo on Facebook of fly-tipping on Tutts Barn Lane which included a mattress and bin bags full of rubbish.

She captioned the photo, “This is insane.”

The lane is actually an emergency access road for Network Rail so if blocked it could cause serious problems.
