Reading fly-tipping: Piles of rubbish dumped behind shops
Piles of rubbish have been dumped on an area of land behind shops, restaurants and houses in Reading.
The site at Shinfield Road is regularly targeted by fly-tippers overnight and is attracting rats, according to people living nearby.
Residents have so far been unable to establish who owns the land.
Government guidelines say those convicted of fly-tipping can be fined an unlimited amount or imprisoned for up to five years.
