Five weeks ago we had travellers arrive on the Postwick cycle path which goes from Oaks Lane to the park and ride.

They left after three days, leaving behind heaps of rubbish including household items, clothes and large piles of tree cuttings.

Despite numerous calls to the council requesting they remove this health hazard and unsightly rubbish nothing has been done.

The bags of household rubbish have been ripped open and various things have been blown all over the site. The fencing around the site has been damaged plus the protective collars around the young trees have been removed and they also are strewn all over the site.

I think it is a very poor show from the council whose duty surely is to keep the public safe and our countryside clean.
