A SERIES of investigations are underway after a number of recent flytipping incidents.

North Herts District Council (NHDC) has said there have been several cases of rural fly-tipping over the summer.

The most recent was last week on the A505.

All are being investigated by the council’s enforcement team.

Cllr Bernard Lovewell, NHDC’s portfolio holder for housing and environmental health, said: “Fly-tipping is a criminal act which affects us all and the council will prosecute offenders wherever possible.

“Not only does it spoil our towns and rural areas, but there are also the financial costs of clearing it up which the council taxpayer has to bear. We urge residents to make sure that they take steps to ensure their waste is disposed of responsibly and in the appropriate way.”
