A fly-tipper was caught in the act by an eagle-eyed motorist, who watched as he dumped rubbish on a well-known ‘grot spot’ in Grantham.

The woman, who asked to remain anonymous, watched in disbelief on Sunday as the man took several pieces of broken wooden furniture to the corner of Grantley Street with Railway Terrace and simply left them there.

She said: “This man thinks it’s OK to blatantly dump rubbish on the corner.

“I would like to see this man prosecuted.”

The area on which the furniture was dumped is a well-known ‘grot spot’ and the Journal has reported on incidents of fly-tipping on several occasions.

The photographs have been sent on to South Kesteven District Council, which will carry out an investigation.
