MPS have teamed up to try to take action against fly-tipping near to landmark Himley pub The Crooked House.

South Staffordshire MP Gavin Williamson met with Dudley North MP Marco Longhi on Friday June 4 to discuss an action plan to solve the ongoing issue with fly-tipping, which affects both constituencies.

Mr Williamson says he has made clear to South Staffordshire District Council the urgent need to stamp out the illegal dumping of waste near the long established and popular pub.

The council has already issued two RIPA orders and installed covert cameras along the road after calls for action from the MPs and Mr Williamson said: "Residents, pub-goers and property owners should not have to live with waste dumping so rest assured I will be working incessantly with all parties affected to stop this unacceptable behaviour.

"I have in the past and will continue to call on the council to take sterner action and halt fly-tipping once and for all."

Marco Longhi said: "For years we have seen indiscriminate criminal behaviour at this site.

"I met with Secretary of State, Gavin Williamson MP, who is my immediate neighbour and whose constituency straddles with mine in Dudley North at this site, together with other local landowners and stakeholders.

"We discussed the complex nature of the problem and we have agreed on a joint plan to deal with both short-term and long-term outcomes we want for this site - a site that both Dudley and South Staffs can be very proud of in the future."
