An incident of fly-tipping has enraged residents of Irvine’s Harbourside.

The mess has been tipped near the bike track by Irvine Beach and includes parts of a vehicle.

One resident said: “If you are gonna use a man and van please make sure they have the correct papers or this is what your paying for, and if it was you that done it, hang your head as its a ... disgrace. This is where families come.”

Some of the debris appears to come from a white Mercedes van.

Incidents of fly-tipping rose under lockdown when local recycling centres were closed, but there continue to be problems throughout North Ayrshire.
