By Chris Hunter

A road is expected to be closed for a week after fly-tippers struck.

Kent Highways said Northfleet Green Road near Gravesend had been closed between Downs Road and New Barn Road due to fly-tipping, and that the waste is expected to be removed by Tuesday, April 9.

A large amount of rubbish including cardboard, rubble, cones and other building waste has been dumped at intervals along the road.

Drivers are advised to use an alternative route.

It follows a similar incident last month when a large amount of waste was dumped in Thong Lane, Gravesend, forcing police to close the road.

Yesterday, it was also revealed Bull Lane between Old House Lane in Newington and Cowstead Road in Stockbury, will be closed until next Tuesday after fly-tippers blocked the route.
