VILLAGERS in Lawshall are concerned that fly tippers could ruin ‘pretty’ areas in the village after a mound of building debris, including tiles were dumped by the side of the road.

The tiles, thought to be from a kitchen or bathroom, have a distinctive seahorse pattern on them and Paula Harber, organiser of the village litter pick, hopes that someone will recognise them.

“It could have been a home owner or it could have been someone carrying out work. The home owner may have paid them to get rid of it responsibly,” she said.

The tiles have been dumped by the side of Bury Road.

Mrs Harber said: “This is a very sad sight to see, close to a pretty river and woodland glade where wildlife thrives.

“The problem is that once it starts in a particular place then other people might think to do it. We are worried it is going to get worse and worse.”
