Fly-tippers dump vast amount of trash on outskirts of picturesque village where homes average more than £ 1/2 a million
The village of Otham near Maidstone has been in existence since before the time of the Domesday Survey of 1086. The well-preserved 12th-century parish church of St Nicholas is a Grade I listed building has been blighted by the fly tipped waste.
These shocking image show the rubbish that callous fly-tippers have dumped on the outskirts of a picturesque village where homes are worth more than £1/2 a million on average.
Residents were dismayed to find a huge pile of waste, on Church Lane that was dumped over night on Monday.
This is a criminal offence, blighting our countryside said one shocked church goer.
This isn’t just a dropped crisp packet, this is someone making money by not doing their job properly.
Local people now can’t enjoy their leisure time, their dog walking, horse riding and cycling.
‘And of course someone will have to pay for the clean-up – the council pays for the cleanup.
Maidstone Council have been approached for comment
