Residents in Newport have been left angered by an incident of flytipping in the village last week.

Panes of glass, believed to be car windows, were left dumped on Wicken Road in the layby near the motorway bridge on Friday, March 31.

Residents took to social media to complain about the incident, with one villager saying she was “sad and appalled” by what had happened.

A spokesman for Uttlesford District Council said: “Our enforcement team will respond to any reports of fly-tipping and arrange removal of the waste once they have investigated it for any identifying evidence that will help to trace the culprit.

“We can remove fly-tips from public land, but waste dumped on private land is the responsibility of the land owner to deal with.

“We would encourage any residents who see a fly-tip, or witness someone fly-tipping, to complete the form on our website at as soon as possible.”
