A LARGE amount of household waste has been cleared after being found dumped in an alleyway.
The rubbish included baths, doors, wood, carpets and bucks and was tipped behind houses on Blackburn Road in West End, Oswaldtwistle.
Neighbours reported the incident to Hyndburn Council who cleared the rubbish of the unadopted road two days later.
Environmental officers are now investigating the waste to try and track down the culprit.
Ward councillor Peter Britcliffe said it was an 'absolute disgrace'.
He said: “I'm hoping from the evidence they have got from clearing it up that they will bring somebody to justice.
“These people need to be given big fines.”
It is believed the flytippers struck sometime between 5pm and 6pm on Friday, November 2.
Deputy Council leader visited one of the residents after being told about the incident the next day.
She said: “I got it cleared up by Monday morning. I visited it on Saturday lunchtime as soon as I was told about what happened.
“It was a big mess and it was on an unadopted road. Our investigators have gone up there and found some evidence to try and track down whose responsible.
“We take incidents of flytipping very seriously and we are determined to find out who has done it.”
