Shocking dashcam footage shows motorists forced to slalom around mounds of fly-tipped rubbish on a mile long stretch of country lane.

Shocking dashcam footage shows how motorists are being forced to slalom around fly-tipped rubbish stretching over a MILE along a picturesque country lane.

Shameless fly-tippers have left the entire road “looking like a landfill site” after dumping the abandoned waste in Llantrisant, South Wales.

Mountains of trash, including fridges, cardboard boxes, crates and bin liners, can be seen strewn along the rural lane in footage taken by farmer Rob Bevan.

The 40-year-old said he was left disgusted after spotting the piles of rubbish as he drove along on Wednesday afternoon (15/5).

His footage shows no less than EIGHTY FIVE separate mounds of brazenly dumped trash scattered across the 2,000 yard stretch of road.

A second video reveals how dozens of bin liners have also been callously left in a pretty stream near to the quaint Welsh town. 

Rob said he was alerted to the eyesore after his wife Deborah, 40, called him in floods of tears to tell him she was stuck on the road due to the mess.

The dad-of-one has now been single-handedly taking the rubbish to a recycling depot – which is only one mile away from where it was dumped.

Rob said fly-tipping has been blighting the area since he moved in four years ago and described it as an “ongoing nightmare.”

He said: “My wife rang me up about 3.30pm on Wednesday and she was in tears as she got stuck on the lane and I had to go and help get her out.

“It was just a hell of a mess and Deborah was in shock.I thought it was just a bit of rubbish on the side the of the road but it went on for a mile.

“Shockingly, the people who did came it back an hour-and-a-half later and unloaded loads of rubbish into a stream.

“And then overnight there was another load that was dumped – it is just absolutely dreadful and they need to be caught.

“It stretches the entire length from my farm to the next farm which is a mile long. I use the road everyday to go to work, but they don’t seem to care.

“Its a bit of everything – there’s baskets, flyers, signs, fridges, used needles and endless pots used for cultivating cannabis. It looks like a landfill site.

“I’ve been here now for about four years and we’ve had these problems ever since. Its an ongoing nightmare for us.

“I’ve been the one who has been picking this rubbish up and I’ve taken it down to the recycling depot free of charge.

“Why people do it I have no idea, the recycling depot is only a mile away and they’ll take the rubbish.

“I don’t know what the world is coming to. What these people are doing is disgusting.

“They are brazen and to do this in the afternoon on the same day is crazy.

“I’m hoping the videos does push the Rhondda Cynon Taff council to look after the road and carry out some maintenance on it.

“I’ve been phoning them to put cameras up but I don’t seem to be getting anywhere with them.

“The local authority need to recognise this is a council road and it needs to be looked after and they’ve been ignoring it.”

In a statement on Facebook, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council wrote: “Fly-tip in RCT and we will catch you and hold you to account for your actions!

“Evidence has now been taken from this horrific mile long discovery and we will be speaking to a local business.

“Details from another site have also been shared with South Wales Police. #WhoDoneIT #CaughtRedHanded.”
