Disbelief has followed the appearance of a sofa found dumped on an A27 roundabout at Chichester.

Amanda Hine, who leads the Litter Ladies community action group, said she first saw the furniture yesterday at Fishbourne roundabout.

She said the sofa was ‘a little bit big’ for the Litter Ladies to pick up.

She said: “I’ve seen some flytipping before but it’s unbelievable.”

The sofa is near to the A259 arm of the roundabout, where roadworks are still going on to change the lighting columns for the junction.

A spokesperson for Chichester District Council said: “We received a report regarding the illegally dumped sofa.

“We asked West Sussex County Council to move the item off the road and to the verge side.

“Because of the location, we can only collect early in the morning and we hope to do this tomorrow morning (Tuesday February 19).

“We have been in contact with the person who reported the fly tip and we have updated her.”
