Fly tippers block Cheeseman's Green Lane, Ashford

By Kristina Curtis

A country lane in Ashford has had to be closed due to rubbish dumped by fly tippers. 

Cheeseman's Green Lane has been covered in debris including bricks, plaster boards, rubbish bags, carpet discards and sheets.

The rubbish, which has been coned off, nearly covers the already narrow road and road closure signs have now been put in either end.
