Flytipping in Mid Sussex: furniture, wood and rubbish strewn across roads in Bolney and Hickstead

Mid Sussex has been hit by inconsiderate flytippers twice in 24 hours, police have said.

On Wednesday (July 28) Mid Sussex Neighbourhood Policing Inspector Darren Taylor said the ‘lazy and unenvironmental lot’ had dumped furniture and rubbish on Broxmead Lane in Bolney and Jobs Lane in Hickstead.

Inspector Taylor said the flytippers showed ‘no consideration for the area, residents or motorists’.
