Seventeen 25-litre drums of unknown liquid dumped

Aylesbury Road, Great Missenden

One appliance and crew from Amersham, one from High Wycombe and two officers attended. Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus and gauntlets set up a cordon, checked and sealed the drums and stood them upright. A number of car parts were also dumped. The incident was left with Thames Valley Police.

Make sure your waste carrier is legal! If a tradesperson fly-tips your rubbish you could face a court appearance and a fine.

This tied up two of our fire engines and crews for more than an hour.

Fly-tipping poses a threat to people and wildlife, damages our environment, spoils our enjoyment of the great outdoors and is very costly to investigate and clear up. Find out more here:
