Sinn Féin Councillor, Paul Duffy, has welcomed the removal of two cars from the Bann fields at the back of Woodside.

He said:

"One of the cars was burnt out - the second car had sunk into the mud and, as a result, ABC council had to bring their tractor on site to pull the abandoned car to the road side.

"Both were then taken away. This will of course be at the ratepayers expense.

"Of late there have been far too many instances of fly tipping in this area. This is a health and safety issue we must all challenge. We cannot expect the ratepayer to continue to foot the bill. Many council facilities exist which allow for the safe and responsible dumping of goods.

"Anyone who witnesses dumping in the area should report it to council immediately. Those responsible should face the full force of the law."
