Have your say

Police have used a new online reporting service after fly-tippers struck on a Sheffield street.

PCSOs in the Wincobank area spotted the above scene on Blackburn Road earlier today, blaming the mess on 'naughty' fly-tippers.

They reported it to the council using the www.fixmystreet.com service, which can also be used by members of the public to report fly-tipping in their neighbourhoods.

The tool can be used anywhere in the country and automatically sends the problem to your local authority on your behalf.
