Severe fly-tipping has taken place again on a street in Fishwick.

Dundonald Street, off New Hall Lane, was targeted as a dumping ground and despite recent clean-up efforts has been left in a state again.

Karen Greaves contacted Blog Preston last month and Preston City Council began an investigation and clean-up operation.

However she said the latest piles of rubbish appeared within the last few days.

She told Blog Preston: “Just over a week ago the last fly tipping was removed.

“We received a letter to say it was local residents doing it and the council will investigate who is responsible.

“Arrived at my mother’s to find another pile of rubbish has been dumped.”

A spokesperson for the city council confirmed an investigation was ongoing and that there were several locations in Fishwick being investigated about fly-tipping.

The spokesperson said: “We are aware of ongoing fly-tipping issues and are currently investigating several locations in the Fishwick area.

“One of those locations is Dundonald Street and at this moment in time, enquiries are being made in relation to four premises on Dundonald Street.

“Further update will be given when the investigation is complete.”
