More junk dumped by Marlhill Copse

More discarded furniture has been dumped just outside the entrance to “valued habitat site” Marlhill Copse.

It’s appeared outside the River Walk entrance, next to Riverside Park.

Around a month ago we reported that discarded furniture had been seen in almost the same spot. It was apparently removed soon afterwards.

It’s currently unclear whose responsibility it is to clear this area, as it’s understood this section of road is "unadopted" by Southampton City Council.

Southampton Airport, which owns Marlhill Copse itself, has been contacted for comment.
