Piles of wood and asbestos have been illegally fly-tipped by “selfish, abhorrent individuals” on a road in the Romsey area.

The pile of rubbish on Ryedown Lane, which also includes some peculiar items such as a green door and pieces of carpet, is believed to have been dumped between 8.30pm on Monday, April 26 and 4am on Tuesday, April 27.

Test Valley Borough Council (TVBC) is appealing for information to catch those responsible for the “disgusting” fly-tip.

Anyone who recognises any of the items or witnessed the incident is urged to come forward.

In a Facebook post appealing for information, Cllr Nick Adams-King said: “Do any of [the items] look familiar? Have you noticed someone having renovations?

“Particularly despicable is the fact this fly-tip included asbestos, so not only anti-social but also hazardous.

“Please help us catch the selfish, abhorrent individuals who did this.

“You can call TVBC in the strictest confidence on 01794 527700 or feel free to send me a private message.”

Because of the presence of asbestos, specialist contractors had to be appointed by the council to clear the rubbish.

The pile was removed on Wednesday April 28.

The incident is just the latest in a spate of fly-tips that have been blighting Test Valley in recent months.
