A PILE of empty beer cans and bottles have littered a woodland area in Oxford.

About 100 empty alcohol glass bottles and tin cans have been dumped under a tree in Magdalen Wood West, near the Wood Farm shops.

A cyclist was passing through the woodland, which backs onto the Eastern Bypass, and spotted the eyesore.

They added: "It use to be such a nice spot but since has declined into a unloved sinister area."
