Operatives have attended the site today and made a start on the large number of fly tips around the edges of both playing fields. Initial rough estimates are that there could be as much as 25 tonnes of debris and rubbish left by the travellers. This consists of a large amount of garden waste from landscape gardening works undertaken by the travellers as well as building rubble and other commercial type waste. I have posted a video on my facebook page which shows the extent of the flytips and rubbish at www.facebook.com/DeepcutDeach
There is also a lot litter and rubbish sacks to be cleared away and that phase of the clean up operation begins early tomorrow morning.
I would like to appeal to local residents to stay away from the two fields that were occupied by the Travellers until council operatives have had chance to clear away the debris, some of which could be potentially hazardous.
This is an audio podcast taken from my live broadcast from the Heatherside Recreation Ground immediately after the travellers had departed.
