The discoveries were made by Worle Nature Watch and Big Worle wildlife walkers with rubbish dumped from Queensway to Castle Batch.

This year a number of fly-tipping cases have been reported in the area including a pile of rotten food left in Banwell and 65 sheets of asbestos material found in Kingston Seymour.

Worle councillor Denise Hunt told the Mercury: “Worle is a great place to live but its worrying we are now seeing the lanes used for fly-tipping.

“It really isn’t acceptable and costs council tax payers money to have North Somerset Council clear it up, money which could otherwise be spent on frontline services for our community.

“We need a zero-tolerance approach to this antisocial behaviour as it is unacceptable and unnecessary.”
