Perhaps there would not be so much fly-tipping if the council made the local tip at Forde Road more user-friendly. Waited ages the other day to dispose of an old lawn mower until the queue was out on to the road while they were loading and unloading skips.

Would have thought that if something against the law happens on the Lawn the police would have to be involved, depends on what is classed as criminal activity these days.
