Problem: Dumped rubbish in Gamble Lane, Farnley.

This week a bath on other building items had been dumped on the lane, which runs off busy Tong Road.

It’s understood discarded drug syringes had also been found in the undergrowth by the side of the road.

One resident told The Dispatch:

“It makes me so angry that people can just come to where we live and just dump stuff. It’s disgusting – people should take their stuff to tips.”
