Fridges, sofas and other abandoned debris was found flytipped when councillors headed out with the local authority’s new Enforcement Team.

Cllr John Howard (Lab, Aldborough) joined the team in Newbury Park on Friday, after seeing an increase of dumped furniture and litter in the area.

Cllr Howard and the officers handed out 23 enforcement notices.

He said: “I was really impressed by our new enforcement team. They took action against wrongdoers and gave polite reminders to some of the residents who needed to tidy up their front gardens.

“We all need to do our bit to look after the local area.”

Since they were enlarged six months ago, the enforcement officers have issued 298 fixed penalty notices, more than three times the amount given out in the whole previous year.
