Mr Gavigan said the latest items to be dumped were pieces of pipe insulation.

It was removed by Chichester District Council on Monday, February 2, but Mr Gavigan returned the following day to find two large fridges dumped at the same spot.

“One of our very much on-going problems is fly-tipping,” he said.

“Not the usual odd bag that occurs, but as you can see from the photographs, a considerable amount is being dumped in Easthampnett Lane.

“Someone out there must know who is dumping, especially as this seems to be from one source.”

A Chichester District Council spokesperson said: “Fly-tipping is a problem across Chichester District and tends to occur in and around laybys in rural areas which are more isolated.

“We deal with around six fly-tips a week, with items dumped including fridges and freezers.”

The council has urged people to report any fly-tipping on 01243 534619.
