Waste which has been dumped at the site


HEAPS of broken glass, discarded plastic and other waste have been dumped on a favourite spot for dogwalkers.

The mess was left at the entrance to the former Weston Airfield site last weekend, and is now proving to be a hazard for dogs, their owners and other wildlife.

One dog-walker, David Frost, has reported the tipping to North Somerset Council, but issued a warning to other people walking their dogs at the site.

He said: “This person has sunk to a new low this time as much of the waste is sheets of glass which has cracked and broken on impact leaving sharp shears of glass pointing upwards – an obvious hazard to pedestrians and their dogs as well as other wildlife.

“The mindless prat who did this had only to drive another half mile to dispose of it correctly in our excellent recycling centre.

“If anyone recognises this waste from recent building work you have had done please report the builder to the council - my dogs narrowly missed cutting themselves on the glass.

“It could be your child next time.”
