Islington Council’s environment chief has condemned ‘selfish’ fly-tippers, after sofas were dumped in Liverpool Road.
After being approached with a picture showing furnishings strewn illegally at the junction College Cross, Cllr Rowena Champion has urged people to dispose of unwanted household items properly.
Cllr Champion told the Gazette: "The vast majority of people who live and work in Islington want to keep our streets clean and take great pride in keeping our borough beautiful.
"Fly-tipping is unsightly, selfish, and can be hazardous, and as such it is unacceptable in Islington.
"The council takes fly-tipping extremely seriously and we will always look to gather evidence and seek the maximum penalties available."
