We suffer in the fens from a blight called "fly tipping", where people will drive out to a remote part of the fen at a time when they are unlikely to be seen in order to dump their unwanted items, usually bulky things like refrigerators and mattresses. Sometimes the dump consists of a mountain of old tyres or ironmongery. In addition, the minor road verges of the fens are often festooned with all manner of detritus - drinks bottles, food wrappers and so on - thrown from the windows of passing cars.
That's the problem. Don't ask me what the solution is. OK, education, but the state of our education system gives me no cause for optimism.
What a way to start the week!
