2:25 pm, Tuesday, 1st August 2023 - 11 months ago


CAR parts and old furniture – items illegally dumped down a Grimsby road in a fly-tipping incident that has been reported to North East Lincolnshire Council.

The authority has launched an investigation into the dumped goods, which were spotted by a member of the public. As part of that, officers are appealing for information from anyone who may have seen a vehicle drive down Peaks Lane.

It would have gone by Humberside Fire and Rescue Service and St Andrew’s Hospice before the goods were dumped on the public road with some thrown over the fence of the former YMCA building, which is now privately owned. Exact timings are not known, but it is likely to have been in the last week.

Anyone with information should contact 01472 326300 and quote the case reference number PR202307 – 15199.

Condemning those responsible for the illegal dumping, North East Lincolnshire Council’s Portfolio Holder for Stronger and Safer Communities, Cllr Ron Shepherd said:

“Fly-tipping of any nature is simply unacceptable, and our officers will be doing all they can to pursue this incident and find those responsible. I would like to thank the person who reported this in the first place and appeal to anyone who saw anything to help us, together we must do all we can to tackle this.”
