A CASTLETOWN community councillor has hit out at the "irresponsible" fly-tipping at rocks near the local beach.

John Calder is dismayed that garden refuse and bushes have been left there.

He said it seemed as if the rubbish was dumped from the lay-by at the corner near the harbour at Castlehill.

"It would appear as if there was more than one trailer load. These actions are irresponsible and whoever did it does not care about the consequences. This was dumped in a scenic area and with strong winds and a high tide it could have been taken out to sea," said Mr Calder.

He pointed out that earth and weeds have been dumped in the area previously.

Mr Calder also said that the windows of an abandoned car near the harbour have been smashed recently.

"The car is full of rubbish inside and the doors have been left open," he added.
