. Worried about the potential hazard of the blocked road, a Diane Clay added: “That's actually a danger to life, no emergency vehicle could go past that, filthy scumbags.” Adding to the Facebook post, Andrea Ward said: “Whoever dumped that rubbish should be put in prison! We are drowning in rubbish, even the countryside isn't safe, fast food wrappers, drinks cartons every bloody conceivable bit of junk because they couldn't be bothered to take their stuff home. I got in touch with the council and they sent me some litter pickers so I'm going to try and do my bit.” It appears this is not the first time rubbish has been illicitly dumped in this area, as a former resident recalled frequent acts of flytipping. Malwina Magdalena said: “I used to live here about three years ago and you could find more and more rubbish every day, people been drinking and smoking nearby and that was a street you been scare to go during day time.” Flytipping is a criminal offence and those caught doing it could face large fines of up to £20,000 and even be sent to prison. Black Country Live has approached Sandwell Council for comment.
