SOFAS, a mattress, a hoover and a child's bike were amongst the items left by fly-tippers on a patch of land near Basingstoke this week.

The waste was left on the side of the A339, near Black Dam roundabout, and the council has since appealed to possible witnessed to come forward and share any information they might have.

Images of the rubbish was shared to social media via Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council's Facebook page.

An accompanying message read: "Did you witness this rubbish being fly-tipped? Do you recognise the items?

"Please contact our Environmental Enforcement Team on 01256 845 227 if you can help or email

"Fly-tipping is illegal, it’s an eyesore, harmful to the environment and it’s expensive to clear.

"If you spot rubbish that has been fly-tipped please report it to us, we will investigate if there is any evidence of an offender and prosecute where appropriate"
