CCTV cameras are being installed along a stretch of road near Hereford which has been repeatedly targeted by fly-tippers .

Rubbish was fly-tipped on land alongside the Tillington to Credenhill Road on January 7, but it was not the first time the frustrated landowner has found waste dumped.

In a plea to Credenhill Parish Council to highlight the issue and share pictures of the rubbish, which included clothing, the landowner said: “As you will see from the attached photos, we are yet again suffering an increase in fly tipping, this time on the Credenhill to Tillington road.

"This despoils our countryside, is extremely bad for the environment, and is illegal.

"Anyone caught fly-tipping will be prosecuted, and this will lead to a criminal record and a significant fine. The maximum penalty is a £50,000 fine and/or five years imprisonment.

"We will now be installing CCTV in various locations along the Credenhill to Tillington and Credenhill to Burghill roads.

"Hereford police rural crimes team have been informed and will be increasing patrols in this area."

As the fly-tipping was done on private farm land, it is the responsibility of the land owner to dispose of the rubbish.
