Contents of entire house dumped in Birmingham car park

Following on from our recent story about a woman who was prosecuted for fly tipping in her own back garden in London, a story has surfaced in the papers today of what appeared to be the entire contents of a house fly tipped in a public car park in Boulton Road, Handsworth, Birmingham yesterday afternoon. 

 
Aside from a mountain of black bin liners, the terrible mess also included a bed (complete with mattress, blankets and pillows), a huge assortment of clothes and shoes and bits of old furniture. The car park appears to have height restrictions in place so the it's not clear whether the shocking mess was dumped by a larger vehicle at the roadside or by a smaller vehicle making serveral visits.
 
The mountain of rubbish was seen by a local man, Shameran Ahmed from Smethwick, who is quoted as saying:
"I come to the area to go to a Kurdish restaurant, but when I came here today there was all of this mess here. It is very horrible and disgusting. This is the first time I have seen a mess like this here. It isn’t good and people shouldn’t be throwing their things away like this on public property. I cannot believe this has happened in Birmingham".

Local councillor Chaman Lal has said that the illegally fly tipped waste will be removed as soon as possible and that the council take matters like this very seriously.

He said:
"I am very upset when we see these things happening and we are frustrated at the tiny minority of people who think it is ok to dump rubbish like this. We try and clean up as soon as we possibly can. However, we need to take the people who do this down with heavy fines or even imprisonment in order to stop them from doing it again. We need to find out who they are in the first place and I call on anyone who knows to come forward and tell us - This is a problem not just in the Soho district but all over the place".
