The building unit, which has an "office" sign stuck on its green door, is thought to have been dumped in the lane on Monday.

Crikey2050 tweeted that the area was "frequently targeted by small scale-fly tipping and littering".

"This is in another league though. The cheek of these people. Hope to goodness they catch the guilty party."
