North Somerset Council has issued a warning after a fly-tipping incident near a Weston-super-Mare hotel.

Rubbish has been dumped near to Travelodge in Beaufighter Road.

It is the latest incident in a string of fly-tipping offences which includes rotten food dumped in Bleadon and Banwell, and asbestos in Kingston Seymour.

A North Somerset Council spokesman said: “Fly-tipping is antisocial and has an impact on the environment.

“There is a cost to its removal but this forms part of our streetscene contract.

“If residents suspect fly-tipping is taking place we would ask them to take a description of people and vehicles, and registration numbers of any vehicles involved but without putting them in a position where a confrontation could occur, and then report the details to us.”

The authority has also urged people to only use licensed carriers to remove waste.
