Council officials believe they can identify those responsible for fly tipping a large quantity of household effects in the Fens.

The rubbish was dumped on a road at Floods Ferry near March overnight and spotted by motorists on their way to work today (Monday).

However, Cllr Jan French believes a clue to the identity of the people who owned the rubbish may have been inadvertently left at the scene.

A carrier bag found amidst the pile is thought to have contained the identity of possible suspects: the name and address found is of someone from March.

Cllr French warned that if culprits are found “they can expect a massive fine, and all because they didn’t want to pay someone to collect is responsibly”.
