A council investigation has been launched after a fly-tipping incident in a rural road.

William Farringdon, of Belton, found the dumped rubbish, which included paint pots, a tyre and a seat, in Lound Lane. He also found a dumped fridge in a nearby road.

He reported to the Great Yarmouth Borough Council on Monday and the authority is appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

Carl Smith, chairman of the council’s environment committee, said: “Great Yarmouth has a zero-tolerance stance on fly-tipping and other forms of environmental crime. Fly-tipping pollutes the environment for everyone, wastes taxpayers’ money in clear-up costs and is completely unjustifiable.

“Our environmental rangers have already searched through this fly-tipped waste and are following up on potential evidence they’ve found. As part of their investigation, the Rangers would like to hear from anyone with information that might help to identify the offender, or offenders. The waste is scheduled to be removed soon.”
