Farmer hits out at fly-tippers that dumped an entire kitchen
Everything but the kitchen sink! Farmer hits out at fly-tippers who dumped a fridge, freezer, worktops and cupboards from restaurant refit on his land
- A fridge, a separate freezer and a toilet were all dumped in Rixton, Cheshire
- Flyers from a takeaway restaurant were included in the pile, farmer revealed
- The restaurant in question had recently been given a total overhaul in Stockport
- Re-branded premises, called Chicklicious, denied any knowledge of flytipping
A furious farmer is on the hunt for the fly-tippers who dumped an entire kitchen on his land.
A fridge, a separate freezer, a toilet and ample building material believed to be from a Manchester takeaway refit were dumped on Andrew Sharpe’s farm in Rixton, near Warrington, Cheshire.
Scores of flyers from a restaurant were included in the pile. The takeaway in question had recently been given a total overhaul in Stockport, Greater Manchester – around 18 miles away.
The re-branded premises, now called Chicklicious, denied any knowledge of what happened.
Mr Sharpe, 61, and his son Jack have so far been unable to track down exactly who discarded the kitchen.
It was dumped at Moss Side Farm about 500 yards off a busy road in the dead of night on Saturday.

Mr Sharpe claimed a contractor who carried out the work admitted to him that the discarded kitchen did come from the takeaway site.
The contractor, known only as ‘Gareth’, claimed he too was unaware of the flytipping and vowed to chase down the culprit.
Mr Sharpe has not been able to reach Gareth since that phone call. The farmer has reported the flytipped rubbish to Warrington Borough Council.
Mr Sharpe – whose family have been growing crops on the land since the Second World War – said: ‘I’ve a good mind to load it on to the back of one of my trailers and deliver it back to them. But I’d probably get into trouble.
‘We’ve tried to go down the route of getting whoever has dumped it to come back and clear it up, but they’ve vanished into thin air.
‘So we’ll let the appropriate authorities deal with it and hopefully they will face a hefty fine.’
Mr Sharpe, his wife Bettina and son Jack, farm more than 1,300 acres of arable land and employ four other people.

Mr Sharpe added: ‘Getting that cleared up will cost the best part of £800. It’s an appalling thing to do. Whoever did it deserves what’s coming to them.’
Chicklicious denied all knowledge of the incident and refused to comment.
There is no suggestion the current owner of the takeaway knew the rubbish would be dumped.
