    Disgraceful! If they catch these people I’d suggest prison time and fines preceded by a few days in the stocks for a bit of public humiliation, enough is enough!

      Run down area! There’s nothing wrong with Whitehawk! I hope it don’t happen anywhere but if it does I hope it’s in your drive way, then you would need some of the hard working people from the area to clean up for you as I doubt you know what a hard days work is!!!

      This is not a run down area .These three storie self build town houses were built in the 1970s by hard working men.My husband being one of them,and we still live up here.So get your facts right.

    it’s about time these people received heavy prison sentences instead of trivial fines

    This is most definitely NOT a ‘rundown’ area!!

    It’s not Whitehawk, it’s above Bristol Estate and a very respectable area. The Council team responded incredibly quickly and spent all day, nonstop, to safely restore order. Really excellent job!

    They could easily find who did that. Cctv from surrounding areas. Finger prints and dna.

    Where it took place seems less relevant other than the fact that it was directly outside a school so that young children had to walk through bricks and wires and broken glass. Cars were trapped above this blockage so that they could not get to work and emergency services could not reach them if needed. Whoever did this had no regard for anyone but themselves. They will probably have taken money to a law abiding person to clear their waste then abused the local residents with this awful crime. Any time spent finding them is time well spent.

    they should take their vehicles money etc away and raid their homes caravans,possibly the same idiots
    who tipped on the main road into Lullinton by Severn Sisters Park a few weeks back literally round a bend nearly caused several accidents. That was there for days the council just put signs out obviously not a rich neighbourhood.
