Oil containers and other waste dumped in drainage ditch on bridleway (person in photo is not fly tipping he is putting them right way up as some are leaking)

Reported via mobile in the Fly-tipping category anonymously at 10:20, Fri 29 October 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3091270.

We found these on a walk today. 12 oil containers have been rolled into a ditch on the left hand side in 2 locations near eachother on the hill up this bridleway. You will need to have a 4x4 to access.

There is also a large gas cannister and various tyres.

Please note at least two of these oil containers were leaking into the drainage ditch which leads the river so they need to be removed ASAP. We have turned them all the right way up to try to help prevent further leaks.
