Campaigner's disgust at travellers' dumped rubbish
A CAMPAIGNER has said he was disgusted after travellers dumped rubbish in the fields off Priory Road.
Pensioner Tony Wray is well-known for clearing up after others.
Last year, he clocked up more than 3,000 miles cycling between his Cottingham home and Hornsea, picking up rubbish on the way.
But Mr Wray, 68, was distressed when he saw the mess left by Gypsies camped illegally beside the popular walking spot.

He said: "It's an utter disgrace. It's just disgusting.
"It's a lovely walk for people with dogs. But the pile of debris there is huge."
The travellers have now moved on from the site, which is owned by Hull City Council and rented by tenants.
But they left behind mountains of rubbish – including human waste.
Councillor Lena Slater, who represents Cottingham South, said: "I can't see how these people can be allowed to keep coming back.
"It's costing the council such a lot of money to clean up after them.
"It costs the tenants on the field to clean up or public money, so how long are we going to carry on letting this happen?"
