Near 25 Bournville Road, London, SE6 4RL
Lewisham London Borough - Rushey Green Ward
Adjacent to Bournville Road on the other side of the River Ravensbourne tents for rough sleepers have been in place amidst the undergrowth for some time now. This in itself does not cause a disturbance but increasingly the residents have been dumping their rubbish on the riverbank and directly in the river - this includes cans, bottles, plastic bags and other plastic waste. As we approach spring and summer plenty of children play in the river a little downstream and it is entirely possible the pollutants dumped in the river contain human waste and pose a significant public health risk for any children or indeed dogs in the river.
