A Derbyshire council has appealed for help to catch the culprits behind what it says are some of the worst cases of fly-tipping in the borough.

A van load of brick rubble was dumped in a farm entrance on Nottingham Road, in Borrowash, on 1 March.

Tyres were also left at Mayfield Grove in Long Eaton and Stanton Gate in Sandiacre.

A spokesperson for Erewash Borough Council said it would not tolerate environmental crime.

Councillor Barbara Harrison, from the authority, said: "I am absolutely appalled at these latest incidents of fly-tipping in our borough and I know residents will share my outrage.

"It is not acceptable for people to think they can dump their rubbish and leave it for someone else to pay for the clear up."

Anyone with any information about those responsible for dumping the rubbish can contact Erewash Borough Council anonymously.
