Sewage shocker

Last week you published a photograph of five bin bags containing garden waste as an example of fly-tipping.

If you would like a more spectacular example, I suggest you take a trip up the once-beautiful hill road from Ashkirk to Roberton where you will find industrial-scale piles of sewage cake are dumped at the foot of the Bill Ogilvie monument, both over a core path and in the exact spot that locals and visitors like to park to admire the view.

Further along the road, nearly every passing place is compromised by further huge heaps of this foul substance. When it rains the discharge is so septic I wouldn’t want it on my wellies, let alone dogs’ feet.

The thought of it running down the hill into the Ale Water or our water supply is repellent.
