FORESTRY bosses are investigating after a freezer full of food was found dumped at the side of a woodland trail.

The bizarre discovery by a member of the public happened around lunchtime on Monday, April 8, at Bradley Hill near Cinderford.

Street wardens from the Forest Council inspected the find, which was later sealed off to prevent wild animals such as boar eating food from the upright freezer, which was found lying on its side with its door open.

A council spokesperson said: “We are aware of the freezer at Bradley Hill.

“The street wardens have been out to inspect and the location has been passed onto Forestry England for full investigation and removal, as it is on their land.

“We work closely with Forestry England and they assure us that action is being taken.

“It really is a great shame to see this happening and we do offer a white goods disposal service to help avoid this situation.

“Thank you to those members of the public that report fly tipping.

“Our street wardens have the powers to issue simple cautions, warning letters and fixed penalty notices but to prosecute a fly tipper we need to have enough evidence.

“That’s why we ask anyone who sees something suspicious to call us on 01594 810000 or report it on our website.”

The Forestry Commission are currently dealing with the issue.
