Have you lost a loo?

This distinctive toilet is currently spoiling a picturesque part of Somerset. It's been spray-painted graffiti-style so surely someone must recognise it.

The old toilet, carpets and other items were found dumped in a country lane just outside Glastonbury in Somerset. They were spotted this morning, Thursday 11 October, by film maker Mickey Richardson who says the area often falls victim to fly-tippers.

I was out walking today at around 11.30am, just outside Glastonbury. I was admiring the beautiful Somerset leaves as they were starting to change and then I walk into this pile of rubbish.

It's not the first time, these little lanes get fly-tipped all the time. Last spring I found lots of local election banners. I did ring them up and they came out and cleaned them up.

But this time, finding the loo is a bit out there.

Mickey Richardson says the toilet, carpets and other rubbish were left on Godney Road just outside Glastonbury but he does not know when it happened.

Mickey Richardson's message to the fly-tipper is, "Don't send our countryside down the pan".

Fly-tipping is a criminal offence punishable by a fine of up to £50,000 or 12 months imprisonment if convicted in a Magistrates' Court. It can attract an unlimited fine and up to five years imprisonment if convicted in a Crown Court.
