POLICE are hunting offenders responsible for waste flytipped at a New Forest beauty spot for the second time in just over a month.

Building materials and furniture including a bed were found dumped at the Shepherds Gutter car park in Bramshaw last Sunday afternoon.

It is believed the offence was committed sometime between 2.15pm and 3.30pm.

This came after clearance during a shop or hotel refit was thought to have resulted in a large flytip including fridges, freezers, televisions and computers discovered at the site on 20th October.

A police Facebook post said: “I know the photo isn’t that clear but this is another flytip in Shepherds Gutter car park.

“Flytipping is one of our priorities and we will be out on patrol again soon with our partners at New Forest District Council and Forestry England looking for offenders.”

A Forestry England spokesperson added: "Forestry England has already arranged for the removal of the waste, but as it contains hazardous material it requires a specialist vehicle to clear it away. We’re actively working together with local partners and Hampshire Constabulary to trace flytips back to the offenders.

"Householders and businesses need to be aware of their own responsibilities for making sure their waste is disposed of properly and check the person they are using is licensed to do so. This can be easily checked on the Environment Agency website.”

Information can be passed to Forestry England via 0300 067 4601 or southern.enquiries@forestryengland.uk or the police on richard.williams@hampshire.pnn.police.uk
