POLICE officers patrolling Blacon have slammed rubbish dumping as 'totally unacceptable'.

The officers used the power of social media to condemn the fly tippers, posting a photograph of a large pile of rubbish dumped in Clifton Drive.

The police posted on the Blacon Police Twitter account: "This is totally unacceptable!

"Whoever has dumped this has not given any thought to who will have to clean this mess up.

"Why should others clean up after individuals who can't be bothered disposing of their rubbish in the correct manner #cleanupyourownmess #keepblacontidy."
