Massive industrial commercial tipping fire risk under the flyover

Reported via desktop in the Flytipping (NH) category anonymously at 15:27, Sat 11 September 2021

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 2994380.

There is a double gate what’s the off the B&Q roundabout. It has several padlocks which connect a chain which connects the two gates together. It appears that the culprits are simply undoing on nut on one hinge which allows one side of the gate to be lifted up and the whole pair of gates folded back giving access to large vehicles. This is likely happening at night as during the day there are people in the vicinity. The rubbish which amounts at this point in time to approximately 120 to 150 tons is a mixture of household and business rubbish with some questionable canisters that could be chemical waste. The rubbish has been dumped by a specialist vehicle in places which are least visible under the motorway flyover. The deposits have been tucked away on each side to be least visible. On the north side the rubbish is cascading into a nature reserve managed by the Forestry Commission. This is falling into a watercourse which has not long been cleared by the commission using amphibious equipment. It is a wildlife habitat.

When This started two or three weeks ago around about the 1st of September 2021 and is ongoing. This is likely happening at night as during the day there are people in the vicinity.
