I take it this won't be investigated further?.. After all, the police didn't bother about the burnt out caravans on the A130 despite the claim that it was arson ..

I am onto it. Have contacted the Police Crime Commissioner demanding justifications for the police spokesman not calling it a crime. I also buttonholed him this week to ask him when he is going to respond.

I can tell you that there is now rubbish also dumped around the caravans, old carpet rolls and stuff so it is now becoming an even bigger dumping ground.

Why not let them just take over the whole road and have their races on it and dump all their crap. Might as well.

These council officers and police are too scared to do anything else.

Quote from Echo - 'The road had to be closed for about an hour as the caravan contained cylinders of propane or butane and there was a risk of explosion'.
Yet it's not a crime?? .. Unreal!! ..
