This happened again with a abandoned motorbike which kids have set on fire. This caused a explosion and I have reported to the police and fire brigade came to take the fire out. Incident number is 96962 east Greenwich fire station came. This has happened before and I require a solution as this is dangerous as it is very close to our garden and the firemen said it could of caught onto our shed and then our house. Please can we get cameras installed as the fly tipping is not only getting out of hand but is unsafe for people living around here.
