Encampment alongside public footpath with exposed gas canisters - seems particularly risky in firework season!

Reported via desktop in the Fly-tipping category anonymously at 11:45, Thu 12 November 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2383885.

It seems that recently an encampment is being built alongside the canal. There appear to be dwellings being built, and gas canisters and other rubbish is scattered around near the dwellings. I suppose this report is both regarding this encampment, as well as the risk posed by some of the rubbish!

If you are on the canal path, and cross the bridge over the canal to walk up the hill towards Warminster Road, there is a field to the left immediately after the bridge, which is where the dwellings appear to be being built.
