Farmer hits out at fly-tip blight in Bradford area

Date of alert:

Crime Ref:


Monday, 18 April 2022

West Yorkshire Police

A FARMER has voiced his disgust at a mountain of rubbish that blights a busy Bradford road near his farm.

Richard Haywood says he is disgusted about the constant fly-tipping.

Mr Haywood, owner of Hoyle Ing Farm, contacted the Telegraph & Argus after reading our story regarding the 10-month closure of the Allerton Lane, Old Road and School Green junction, which links Thornton to Allerton.

Earlier this month, a developer and Bradford Council said “unforeseen circumstances” have led to the work taking much longer than initially anticipated.

The work conducted by Keepmoat Homes began last July and was originally set to be completed on October 8.

However, in January, the Telegraph & Argus was told by the Council that works to improve School Green and Allerton Lane are expected to be completed in the last week of February. But work is still in progress.
