Driving along the A17 and turning off on the B1357 road that goes towards Moulton Seas End there is within about 100 yards, or whatever that is in metres, a small lay-by on the left-hand side close to a brick-built shelter.

It’s been weeks now since there were minor roadworks on this junction on the A17 and in this lay-by is quite a considerable amount of road surface repair material as in the ‘black stuff’ deposited there since the job was finished (see picture above).

I refer to it as Egor as in Egor Blimey

Now would this amount to either option one, fly tipping, or option two, is the owner coming back at some time in the foreseeable future to pick it up and take it away?

So far as one can ascertain nobody is coming to feed it or see to its welfare on a regular basis nor has anybody attempted to sell it any form of home improvement deals or change their utility supplier, plus it’s not been canvassed as to who they or it will be voting for in any foreseeable election if one should be in the offing.

I refer to it as Egor as in Egor Blimey. It’s ironic considering the state of the roads in the area with regard to potholes that Egor should be left to his or her own devices as opposed to being put to use in filling said potholes.

Although I have a sneaky feeling somebody will correct me that it’s not the right grade, breed or colour shade but I would prefer if they are that knowledgeable they could repatriate it to its rightful owner, as I feel sure it might come under fly tipping depending on what rubber stamps might be free to deal with it.
