A fly-tip dumped on the side of a street has been causing a stir online.

The tip in Goodwyn Avenue, Mill Hill, was not reported to the council but its picture has already been making the rounds on Twitter.

Mill Hill Broadway, a blog for the area, said it was shocked that the police did not act.


The police in Barnet has responded.


Barnet Council has said it was just made aware of the rubbish on the street and said it would get it cleared tomorrow.

A Barnet spokesperson said: “We have received no formal reports of the flytipping in Goodwyn Avenue, and would encourage all residents to report flytipping where they find it at barnet.gov.uk/flytipping.

“We take flytipping extremely seriously and will take enforcement action wherever we can find evidence of the people behind it."

Recently, a firm was ordered to pay £10,000 after a successful prosecution by the council.
