A band of Travellers dumped piles of rubbish on picturesque moorland today...*shocked face*
The Travellers had set up an illegal camp on land owned by the Maristow Estate north of Plymouth a week ago.
They packed up early today after they were warned that they were breaking the law.
But they left the area on Roborough Down Lane strewn with rubbish, including a child’s bicycle, shoes and even a craft knife.Lovely!
A city council spokeswoman would say only that “We are following our normal procedures for dealing with unauthorised encampments.”Prosecution for flytipping offences, perhaps, as would happen to anyone else?
This includes providing access to services including education, social and health care, and street services.Ah. No. Of course not. Silly me.
