IT once stood proud and new but now this little red van has a new role in life - as a skip.
Residents in Windsor Road, Ipswich were outraged as before their eyes this abandoned van has gradually become a dumping ground for anything and everything.
Rubble, bricks and even a disused toilet filled the van and residents said it was so full that they doubt anyone would be able to move it.

Hayley Polley, 23, said: "It has been there about a week and it makes the road look absolutely awful. It takes up parking spaces as well and it is difficult enough to park down here at the best of times. There are no number plates or a tax disc on it and it just keeps getting fuller and fuller.
I have no idea who is using it but the police or the council have done nothing yet to sort it out," she said.

The van, which has a tax disc dating back to February 1999 is parked next to an already full skip.
Another resident who did not want to be named said: "It is disgraceful and a real hazard as there are dangerous objects in there. It has been there about a week but no one seems interested in moving it. Although with the amount of rubbish in it I doubt they could."
A spokeswoman from Ipswich Borough Council said: " There are plans to move it today. The van is full of concrete and rubble so we need to empty it before we can move it. But with the residents co-operation we hope to have it moved or at least have work in progress today."
