Avenham Place has become a hot-spot for fly-tipping in recent months.

She said: “The mound on the right was new, to add to the rubbish behind the fence which has been there a few days now.”

Agnieszka has reported the fly-tipping to Preston City Council who are due to clear it up in the coming days.
