While walking his dog, the man, who did not want to be named, came across a large pile of rubbish behind Watchlytes Primary School.

Along the school’s fence was a needle with what appears to be a bit of heroin still inside, as well as paraphernalia, condoms, food waste, cigarette filters, and women’s denim shorts.

The man said he found the rubbish three weeks ago and decided to report it to the council today [August 13], but as he didn’t want to give his details it couldn’t be logged.

Following enquiries by the Welwyn Hatfield Times, a council spokeswoman said: “People can report things anonymously to us where we don’t need their name and address.

“We will be clearing the rubbish as soon as possible.”
