FLY-TIPPED waste has been spotted on Ventnor Downs and shared on social media.

A picture showing fridges and other kitchen appliances dumped on the downs was taken by a dog walker.

The carelessly disposed items, blighting the Isle of Wight beauty spot, has attracted much criticism on social media.

One person wrote: "Makes my blood boil. No need for it whatsoever. Someone must recognise these from a business that’s recently closed. I don’t imagine they’ve travelled too far."

Another posted: "That is shocking."
