Lewes District Council has cleared 102 tyres that were fly-tipped in Moor Lane and Half Mile Drove, near Ringmer. 

The tyres were dumped in two different spots in Half Mile Drove and on both sides of Moor Lane at various points along its entire length. 

As soon as the council was alerted, two vehicles and three crews were sent to clear the tyres. 

Councillor Isabelle Linington, Cabinet Member for Environmental Impact, said: “This is absolutely unacceptable behaviour and we will not hesitate to prosecute if we find out who is responsible. If anyone has any information that can help us, they should use the council’s Report-It app.”
