A London businessman planning to open a warehouse-based post-apocalyptic paintball facility has been let out of pocket due by unscrupulous tyre dumpers.
According to Wharf.co.uk, David Jones opened the door of his industrial estate property to find 15,000 used tyres.
He explained that he had caught a man dumping 150 car wheel casings at one of his other sites and told him he could not leave them there.
Upon hearing that the man simply needed a place to store the waste material for a few days, Mr Jones said he could use the warehouse.
However, he was left with an £11,000 bill after the man dumped thousands of tyres with no intention of removing them.
In order to press ahead with his plans for a new paintball centre at the Charlton site, Mr Jones had to pay to have the waste removed and properly dealt with.
Stag parties looking to use the site should still be able to do so, although the owner was left furious at the bill.
Meanwhile, BBC News recently reported that a number of paintball smoke grenades had been stolen in Wiltshire.
