A SHOCKING case of fly tipping happened in the West Wight this morning (Friday).

A member of the Isle of Wight Birding Facebook group, Gary Hadden, posted this photo on their page.

It shows a range of rubbish dumped close to one of the Island’s beauty spots, Tennyson Monument, in the car park of West High Down near the Highdown Inn.

A child’s sleeping cot, boxes, plastic goods and toys are among the items tipped.

Gary said there was also a letter with a name and address visible amongst the rubbish.
