The rubbish which appears to have been dumped on a country lane in Chilgrove

A large sofa and bin bags of rubbish appear to have been illegally dumped in Chilgrove, partially blocking a country lane.

An orange children’s toy is amongst the household waste which was photographed by horrified Chichester resident Dulcie Levett.

Dulcie said: “It is obvious that someone has loaded a truck or van with no intention of taking the contents to the council tip and has selfishly, with no regard to anyone else or the law, upended the contents in the road to become someone else’s problem.

“It is an absolute disgrace and almost unbelievable that some lazy person would contemplate illegally dumping this rubbish in the first place but for it to actually be dumped in the road shows the contempt that this person or persons has for their fellow man or beautiful countryside that surrounds them.

“I hope you show this photo and that someone will recognise the brown leatherette settee and orange toy etc as somebody out there must know of a person who has loaded up this kind of rubbish to be got rid of recently and then hopefully the perpetrator can be caught,named and shamed.”
