Almost 40-60 tonnes of rubbish in the Upminster lane.


Residents will get the chance to put their questions about fly-tipping to a top council officer today.

Steve Moore, Havering Council’s director of neighbourhoods, will attend a meeting at St Joseph’s Social Hall, St Mary’s Lane, Upminster, from 6.30pm.

He will be able to inform people what the council is doing to prevent rogue fly-tippers dumping mountains of rubbish illegally.

Roads in Upminster have borne the brunt of the fly-tips with Little Gerpins Lane and Sunnings Lane being targeted by organised criminals.

The council has promised to crack down on those who flout waste removal laws.
