A bed of bluebells at a Preston church has been ruined by fly-tippers.Advertisement
Church wardens found a toilet had been dumped in the grounds of St Mary Magdalene church in Ribbleton.
David Thorp from the church said: “This morning we found that two people must have been caught short yesterday evening and left their toilet in the church grounds.
“They have ruined a lovely bed of bluebells.
“We have the culprits on CCTV and we would be well flushed if they could return and take it away with them.”
