Country lane confrontation over fly-tipping captured on camera

Duncan Tomblin confronts two men he suspects were fly-tipping while a colleague films it on a mobile phone.

A country lane confrontation over fly-tipping in Bedfordshire has been captured on video on a mobile phone.

A group of tree surgeons were on their way home from work when they saw two men in a van close to a huge pile of dumped rubbish on the Dunstable Downs.

They approached the men who they suspected were fly-tipping and called the police. Callum Chase and Duncan Tomblin suspected the men were dumping furniture.

The incident is now under investigation by Central Bedfordshire Council's legal team which will conduct interviews and gather evidence ahead of any potential prosecutions.

Highways England has spent £800,000 improving a cycle path which links Bishop's Stortford to Stansted Airport carrying cyclists safely over the busy M11.

It means anyone cycling to and from the airport can avoid having to use the main multi-lane roundabout to get to there.

The project includes new signs as well as some resurfacing work and adding extra barriers and fences.

The cost of the upgrade was part of an £11 million improvement scheme for the M11.
