A country road has been blocked this morning thanks to a lorryload of fly-tipping.

Sunnings Lane, Upminster had what appears to be broken wooden furniture strewn across the narrow road, stopping motorists in their tracks.

One Twitter user, @carliehammond7, posted that car recovery was on its way to help her after she got stuck in the dark just before 7.30am.

The road is frequently used by fly-tippers and dumped rubbish can even be seen on its Google Street View images.

Earlier this month a van stolen from Saint Francis Hospice was seen fly-tipping in the road.

  • I lived in Sunnings lane for 18 years and nothing has changed regarding the fly tipping. If it was a car parked with an inch of tyre on the kerb the council would no doubt be there with CCTV ready to fine the motorist, yet they can't put a CCTV camera each end of this road or an anpr system to catch the culprits. They have cameras everywhere else.
