Council investigates major fly-tip incident


Multiple Quantities of Tyres have been illegally fly tipped around the district. Arun District Council is appealing for witnesses after a total of 270 tyres were dumped in the district over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Large quantities of tyres were dumped in Blakehurst Lane, Crossbush Lane, Tortington Lane and Binsted Lane, all in Arundel.

A further 20 tyres were left in Madehurst Lane, Arundel, and four in Church Road, Pagham.

Councillor Paul Wotherspoon, Arun District Council’s Cabinet Member for Neighbourhood Services, said: “We were appalled to discover that such a large quantity of tyres had been dumped over the weekend. If you witnessed this crime taking place, or have any information which could help us to track down the culprits, please get in touch. We take fly-tipping very seriously and are keen to catch the offenders.”

Anyone with information is urged to report it to the Arun Direct Cleansing Service on 01903 737754 in the strictest confidence.

In all cases of fly-tipping, having as much information as possible to report helps to bring successful prosecutions, including;
• The day, date, time and location of the fly-tipping
• A description of any people involved
• What was fly-tipped and how much
• Details of any vehicle involved, including registration number, colour, make and model
