Richard Exton shared this photo of the eyesore on Edge Lane in Foxhill, asking: “What kind of scumbag does this?”

He said he had spotted the rubbish this morning at about 8.45am, and had reported it to Sheffield Council.

And the 64-year-old from Grenoside said it was not the first time fly-tippers had struck in the area.

“It's a regular dumping ground. The last time I tweeted about it was May 2 but it usually happens every week,” he said.
