A GRIMETHORPE resident has blasted fly-tippers for using an empty property’s garden as an unofficial dump-it site.

Peter Haigh, of High Street, recently moved to the village from Sheffield and a property next door to his home has a mountain of rubbish in its yard.

“I’m amazed it happens and I can’t get my head around it,” he said. “I work hard to keep my garden tidy but then I have this next door to me.

“It’s an eyesore and it’s giving the village a bad name. It looks awful but this street’s empty homes are a magnet for fly-tippers. Many are from this area so in essence they’re dumping on their own doorsteps.”
