Farmer confronts county councilor who gives fly tipping

Video has captured the moment an angry farmer returns bags of rubbish to a councilor whose name was found inside the bin bags – but who insists he is not the tipper .

Clive Bailye says the waste was dumped in one of his fields in Lichfield, Staffordshire.

The 49-year-old farmer, who has dealt with numerous fly-spill incidents over the years, decided to look through the bags and soon discovered letters addressed to Cllr Tom Loughbrough-Rudd.

Video footage shows Clive returning the three bags of rubbish to the property at the address, which is just half a mile from his farm.

Cllr Loughborough-Rudd, an independent who sits on Staffordshire County Council, has since denied littering the rubbish and says it belongs to his ex-partner who paid someone to dispose of the rubbish.

Clive is heard saying to him: “We are bringing back the garbage that was left in the field and thrown on the road.

“It’s got your name and address in there, so we brought it all back. It’s all yours.

Clive, who runs TWB Farms, said: “One of our guys who works for me found the rubbish and brought it to me.

“It’s very stupid. The bag was full of SIM cards, it was full of prepaid SIM cards. Which is strange.

“We get a lot of tips. We try to identify who it was while people leave their letters with the address in the trash.

“The council and the police don’t care. The address was next to the pitch, so we took it to them.

“We had another incident a day after this one where we had a whole transit truck worth knocking over on our driveway. We have to clean it up ourselves, we have to get a dumpster to We had a whole sailboat dumped on our land one time.

“Farmers across the country are becoming the nation’s unpaid garbage collectors.”

Cllr Loughborough-Rudd, meanwhile, said: “I didn’t fling the rubbish.

“My ex-partner paid someone to get rid of the rubbish but it was dumped in a field.

“There was a letter addressed to me by a cell phone company which was the SIM card I gave to my partner when we were together from February meaning it had to be there for some time, and other stuff from members of this household that I won’t reveal.

“I happened to be at my ex-partner’s house picking up some stuff when the farmer arrived.

“I explained this to him.”
