Fly-tipping is continuing to plague West Yorkshire's rural beauty spots - with a suggestion that culprits are combining a day trip to the countryside with the chance to offload unwanted items.
In one corner of Kirklees, disapproving residents have dubbed the offenders 'day-tippers' to reflect the theory that people are enjoying a trip out to see the area's remote splendour, then dumping items in laybys, farmers' fields and rural lanes.
In one incident highlighted yesterday, a large quantity of garden waste - including numerous plant pots with soil inside - was discarded at the side of the scenic Holme Moss route, which runs between Holmfirth and Derbyshire.
