People living in Fowlmere are concerned about rising piles of rubbish being dumped near a school by fly-tippers.
County councillor Peter Topping has had numerous complaints about the piles of rubble, concrete in plastic bags, metal frames, chicken wire and wood that have been left over the last few weeks on county council land near Butts Lane.
He said: “People are saying that the dumping seems to be getting more regular.
“It’s one of those things, because it’s quite out of the way people think they can get away with it. The teachers at the school park their cars just next to that place.
“It’s not in the middle of nowhere, it’s part of the village. You don’t want children climbing all over it.”

The concerns are heightened by the fact that two years ago there was a worrying trend of incidents of fly-tipping around the village by a London gang engaged in a turf war.
