Around midnight on Monday a lorry dumped a large amount of waste in the Pinfold some hundred metres along the Dale. The Pinfold is some 75 metres in depth from the road so easily concealed. A member of the Council heard the activity from above and attempted to drive a large farm vehicle to the site to obtain the number, but the two or three people had by then disappeared, leaving behind a large amount of mattresses and other trash.

We have reported this to both DDCC Waste Team and the police, but have no identification of the vehicle used.

This is becoming increasingly common, with several incidents in Heathcote over the last year. If you see anything, please do not attempt to tackle the perpetrators but try and obtain the reg number and notify either the Parish Council or other authorities.
