Drivers were forced to re-route their journeys this morning (Monday) after fly tippers caused Slapton Lane to be closed.

The road between Billington and Northall was covered in rubbish and was shut by police.

One driver was on his way to work when he noticed the road closed.

He said: “The police have had to close both ends because the fly tippers have dumped block paving and their rubbish in the middle of the road.

“I saw the usual traffic going that way and they they all started turning round, it is disruptive to all of the people that use this road, especially on a Monday morning.”
