A TIP has had to be closed after a man ‘went on a rampage’ in a digger.

Police said Todmorden Household Waste Recycling Centre had been shut this morning because of the incident.

They posted a picture to followers on Twitter of the yellow digger, which appears to have smoke coming from it, and the damage caused, including decimated wooden and metal fences.

The tip is run by Calderdale Council and is normally open from 8am to 4pm on Saturdays.
