Rose Lane near Askern was left covered in debris by flytippers.

She said: “The stuff from the road has now been cleared away after it was reported to Doncaster Council, but the stuff in the ditch is still there.

She added: “It's happening everywhere near here. There's a small road down to a local campsite and every single layby on this single road is regularly full of stuff.”

Abbes Walk, which leads to Squirrel Wood Scout campsite and onto Burghwallis, is another popular spot for flytipping, she said.

“It makes it very difficult passing vehicles coming the opposite way when the lay-bys are full of rubbish.”
