Huddersfield's countryside has been blighted once more by flytipping.

Bright blue bags of waste have been dumped in a layby off the A640 New Hey Road, near on the way to Cupwith Reservoir.

It is believed the rubbish could be the remains of a cannabis farm — though no plants have been dumped.

However large plant pots, chemicals and extraction tubing often associated with the growing of cannabis lies among the waste.

An Examiner reader spotted the mess on her way to Cupwith Reservoir.

The large pile of blue bin bags dumped off New Hey Road is the latest in a spate of flytipping in Kirklees.

Bags of food waste, garden chemicals, white goods, furniture and packaging have been engulfing parking spaces near to the bottle bank on Park Lane in Emley each week for the last year.

And fridge and freezer carcasses, asbestos and builders rubble were dumped on a a former rail siding off Hurst Lane, Mirfield, last month.

There are fears flytipping could get worse after Kirklees Council announced that people will no longer be able to dump soil, rubble and plasterboard at Kirklees tips.

The council has approved cuts to its waste and street cleaning policy and said it will no longer take the above items for free.
