New misuse for Seething Wells?

The chains and heavy duty padlocks have been removed from both sets of gates, but a plastic carrier  bag holds their base aligned to make them look secure. Inside, the wharf is covered with several cubic metres of landfill, from building waste to household rubbish complete with child car seats and paddling pool. This would have been deposited in at least three open backed truck loads and more are probably on their way.

The last time there was an unofficial land fill site in Kingston, it took a year to close it down, due to the ensuing 'responsibility' argument between the council and the Environment Agency, which nobody won. Perhaps whilst debating who will stop more waste arriving, we could arrange for a temporary padlock to be put on both gates. I guess the owners are aware, as I am reliably told they monitor this site.
