The fridges have been strewn along the Warrengate Road end of Bradmore Lane, leaving glass and metal debris on the road.

It is the second flytipping incident in a week.

On April 25, police removed another seven from near the bend halfway down Bradmore Lane.

Fridge disposal at nearby Potters Bar Household Waste Centre, an eight-minute drive away, is free of charge.

A spokesperson for Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council said in response to the earlier incident: “There have been a number of incidents like this in recent months across Hertfordshire. We’d like to remind residents that rather than leaving items out for anyone to collect, you should use a registered waste carrier. Please abide by the S.C.R.A.P code, details of which are on www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/flytipping.”
