Windscreens dumped near Crowland's A16 route have been warned of prosecutions if they are caught.




Fly-tippers who left a pile of windscreens near the A16 in Crowland road may have left enough clues for enforcement officers to trace them.

The windscreens were dumped at the junction of Green Drove and The Chase between Thursday and Friday.

Crowland district and county councillor Nigel Pepper said: "The site is an unclassified road but there were lots of markings, stickers and paperwork on the windscreens which should help to trace the culprits."

Coun Gary Taylor, portfolio holder for communities at South Holland District Council, said: "Fly-tipping is not only a blight on our historic countryside but a drain on council resources.

"Thankfully, the incident was quickly dealt with as a result of the vigilance of a resident who informed us of the fly-tipped items.

"We will be examining the contents for any evidence which may lead to a prosecution.

"In the meantime, our message to these unscrupulous individuals is that we will not tolerate these kinds of criminal offences in our district and we will seek prosecution whenever possible."
