Londonthorpe Woods in Grantham turned into ‘grot spot’ thanks to fly-tippers
Fly-tippers have turned turned beautiful woodland on the outskirts of Grantham into a scrapyard.
Dozens of tyres were dumped in the car park of Londonthorpe Wood this week. And although Ian Froggatt, the site manager responsible for maintaining the area on behalf of the Woodland Trust, lightheartedly referred to the mess as a “new species not normally found in woodland,” the fact remains that there is a financial impact on the charity.
This is because tyre disposal, especially in this quantity, falls outside normal fly-tipping clearance, so the charity faces additional costs in order for them to be removed in the correct way.
