A pile of dumped rubbish is blocking a one way street in Addiscombe.

It is believed the rubbish was discarded sometime between Monday night and Tuesday morning in Heron Road, at the junction with Tunstall Road.

Although the rubbish was reported to the council yesterday, it has yet to be cleared up.

The waste which includes a headboard, cardboard boxes, tarpaulin and plants is blocking access to the one way road.

One resident, who did not want to be named, said: "It's a real shame we have such inconsiderate people living in Croydon, who do such cowardly pathetic actions."

A spokesman for Croydon Council said: “The council’s waste contractor has been made aware of this fly-tip and will deal with it at the earliest opportunity.”
