    Heard a number of adult men fly tipping last evening aroung 6pm. These men were wearing some sort of uniform with red tops , i could only see a partial word on their tops which was "life" in white lettering on the red teeshirt / top.Too afraid to approach them, totally blocking alleyway between number 34 and 36 Gatlin Rd, (both council properties). Flytip contains drums of liquid, house rubbish, health and safety issue and environmental issue. Also work that was carried out a couple weeks ago by council employees have left concrete post and burnt remnants of a burnt wooden fence belonging to number 34 has been left in alleyway. This work had been carried out because of an incident by youths burning a bike in the alleyway which caused a fire, which set alight the wooden fence and large eucalyptus tree located at rear of number 34. Fire brigade came quite quickly made safe. Fence was rebuild within the week but have left debree behind. See pictures. If something happens like this again the fire brigade wont be able to attend as allyway is totally blocked. Can this be cleared as a matter of urgency. Many thanks Mr Lanigan
