An eyewitness said: “By the looks of things he was told he couldn’t take his van in and acted like a pure child and blocked the entrance.

“It carried on for about 20 minutes and then the old bill turned up and told him to get out of the way.

“When I left, they had him to the side and it looked like they were just talking to him.

“The tip workers were walking up and down while it was all going on trying to explain everything.”
