Fly-tip in Woodcot Lane, WGC


A MYSTERY litterbug has been spotted dumping rubbish in bushes.

The unknown woman was spied fly-tipping handfuls of trash in Woodcot Lane, to the outrage of neighbours.

One shocked man, who did not wish to be named, told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “I am absolutely livid.

“I keep seeing this woman pull up in her car and as she smokes away merrily, she seems to be chucking this stuff in the bushes when no one is looking.”

A spokeswoman for Welwyn Hatfield Council said: “No one has reported any occurrences of fly-tipping there.

“An officer will investigate what has happened, and depending on the circumstances, will take relevant action.”
