A clean-up operation has taken place after fly-tippers dumped a huge amount of rubbish at the site of a former petrol station off the A14.
Huntingdonshire District Council joined Hemingford Abbotts Parish Council and farmers from the area to clear up the mess dumped at the former Shell Garage site on the A14 on March 26.
Fly-tippers dumped building and household waste, furniture, doors and a host of other items on the site. Council officials had to call in heavy machinery and lorries to help clear the site and take the waste away.
Across the UK, fly-tipping costs landowners and local authorities around £150million every year.
