Artist David Hockney has responded to reports of fly-tipping at an East Yorkshire beauty spot by showcasing some of the artwork he created there.

The world-famous artist released the artwork he created digitally on a tablet at Woldgate, after being contacted by BBC Look North to get his thoughts on the fly-tipping problem there.

The programme had heard from fan Bob Ward, who had see Hockney’s latest exhibition and went to Woldgate to see the kind of scenes the artist painted.

When he got there he found those scenes blighted by litter. Artwork that Hockney made in 2011 and released this week shows Woldgate with litter. He says it is very sad that fly-tippers are ruining the scenery.

Hockney is dismayed that so few people use the road and ever see spring arrive at Woldgate, or the 6am shadows from the morning sun in summer.

Mr Ward said he was humbled and moved by Hockney’s response.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council says fly-tipping is a problem in the area and it has cleared the litter at Woldgate.
