'Mindless' flytippers have struck in the High Peak.

Wildlife crime officer PC Emerson Buckingham was on patrol in the Goyt Valley yesterday when he discovered the dumped rubbish.

It was on a single track road between Errwood Reservoir and Derbyshire Bridge near Buxton.

A Derbyshire Constabulary spokesperson said: "PC Buckingham reported this to High Peak Borough Council and it was confirmed to him that arrangements have been made to remove it."

In a tweet, Derbyshire Constabulary's wildlife crime officers described the flytipping as a 'disgusting mess' by 'mindless people'.
