THREE fridges have been left strewn across a Poole road for days alongside paint tins which have begun to leak. 

The assortment of items have been left blocking Pine Drive, off Wilderton Road for nearly a week. 

Said to have been reported to BCP Council by multiple people, the paint has begun to form a river on the path into the nearby grass verges. White powder, motor oil, an old TV and a tennis racket have also been seen within the tip. 

Aaron Russell, head coach at Branksome Park Tennis Club said: "It's not the first time it's happened.

"I get loads of stuff behind my club which is dumped by my bins like massive 20 litre canisters of cooking fat oil.

"It's not a good visual for the club if it's seen as a dumping ground but it's a perfect spot in such a nice, beautiful woodland area."

Aaron said he often clears some of the mess, which has included catering-related objects. 

The 34-year-old also said there had been issues with littering due to campervans staying for weeks in the past, however, this has been solved by putting in strict towing enforcement. 

Karen Rampton, BCP councillor for Talbot and Branksome Woods, said: "I think flytipping is always an issue in every part of Bournemouth and Poole, there is an enforcement company who do come along and examine fly-tipping and they'll get through it and check for names and addresses or any sort of indication as to where it's from. 

"We also do have some fantastic people in the community who go out and collect litter on a regular basis so sometimes it's actually collected by volunteers before it's even a massive issue. 

"We've had a particular problem along Nelson Road in Coy Pond with rubbish left behind but it is important to stress, please contact your local councillor and them to report it."

Another tip has been noted in the same area formed from old pieces of wood and another fridge.

Councillor Kieron Wilson, Portfolio Holder for Housing and Regulatory Services, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (BCP) Council said: “We were made aware of the flytip at Pine Drive on Sunday 19 May and reported it to Waste Investigations Support and Enforcement (WISE) for them to investigate. We will be removing the rubbish by the end of the week.

“It’s a shame that certain individuals choose to dispose of their waste in this way which not only creates an eyesore but is also harmful for the environment as well. If anyone witness any flytipping taking place, please report it to us through our website."
