AN OVERTURNED ride-on lawn mower was abandoned on the side of a road in a 35-acre biological woodland.

Sharing a photo of the dumped fly-tip on Facebook, Vale of White Horse District Council's 'envirocrime' team speculated whether the 'culprit' tried to take a corner a bit fast on their lawn mower at Reed Hill near Letcombe Regis.

They added: "With an average speed of four miles per hour, someone must have seen the culprits slowly making their way through the country lanes on it."

Anyone with information about this fly-tip is urged to contact the council on 01235 422146 or
