Books, children’s toys and old clothes were dumped in a fly-tipping hotspot close to a primary school.

The Daws Lane car park, in Mill Hill, is constantly used by brazen litter louts - and a new heap of rubbish appeared overnight.

Last month, Barnet Borough Council promised to address the problem by moving large recycling bins from the site, which is close to Etz Chaim School.

But this has not helped act as a deterrent to the people who “selfishly” leave piles of old rubbish to be collected by bin men.

Nikky Schofield, who uses the car park to take her seven-year-old daughter to school, said: “The amount of stuff left this morning is just shocking - It’s horrible, really disgusting.

“I don’t understand whey the people don’t just take these things to a charity shop. It’s raining and everything is getting soaked, which attracts rats.

"This time they've left cardboard, old building material, children's toys, books and three car seats. It's awful.”

The main recycling bins were removed by the authority, and the remaining two are due to be collected this weekend.

The Times Series is awaiting comment from Barnet Borough Council.
