Bexley Council is investigating after a lorry full of rubbish was abandoned on a main road in Sidcup.

Images shared with News Shopper show a truck full of items that has been dumped in Edgington Way, with its back doors open.

Inside the trailer appears to be several pallets of waste which are piled on top of one another.

The council says the incident has been reported and a team will investigate the circumstances which led to the truck being abandoned.

This discovery comes a week after Bromley Council announced it would have to shell out an estimated £80,000 to remove two lorries that had been dumped in Copers Cope Road in Lower Sydenham.
