The fly-tippers are still at it – dumping waste and fouling up our picturesque surroundings.
But for as long as they’re out there blighting our landscape, you can rest assured that the Mercury will be following them every step of the way.
Our latest pictures of the fly-tippers’ handiwork have all come from locations in and around Tansley.
Matlock Mercury photographer Paul Robinson spotted the fly-tipped rubble and rubbish on Knabhall Lane – and a very similar pile of waste on Cunnery Lane.
The abandoned household units share the same brown and white formica design, suggesting that the two piles of rubble could well have come from the same source.
Also this week, a Tansley resident came into the office to let us know about a fly-tipped refrigerator near to Red House Farm, off Holestone Gate Road, between Tansley and Ashover.
The resident, who did not want to be named said: “It’s about 100 yards off the main road on a track that I go running on. I go running there every morning, so I noticed it straight away when it appeared last week.
“It looked like a freezer or refrigerator, I don’t know why people are too lazy to take things to the tip.”
n Anyone who sees any fly-tipping in the area should report it to Derbyshire Dales District Council – together we can keep the fly-tippers at bay.
