POLICE are appealing for information to identify the person or people responsible for fly tipping in a field at the top of Princelett Shute, Apse Heath, Sandown.

Overnight between Sunday 17th June and Monday 18th June a large amount of household rubbish, including kitchen units, garden pots and wall paper was dumped in the field.

PC Tim Campany said: “Fly tipping is a blot on the Island’s natural beauty. It may be that someone has paid to have this rubbish disposed of and the person accepting payment has conned them.”
