The flytipped waste at Gapton Hall

ENVIRONMENTAL rangers are calling for help to identify those responsible for dumping fly-tipped rubbish near to Gapton Hall Retail Park in Great Yarmouth.

ENVIRONMENTAL rangers are calling for help to identify those responsible for dumping fly-tipped rubbish near to Gapton Hall Retail Park in Great Yarmouth.

The slip road off the Gapton Hall roundabout leads to Cobholm allotments and businesses north of the retail park.

Community protection manager Glenn Buck said: “This is an area that has been prone to fly-tipping in the past. We have carried out regular patrols to try and catch people in the act of dumping.

“Unfortunately most dumping occurs at night when few people are around to witness it. Within the last few days a significant quantity of household waste has turned up which looks to have come from a house clearance.”

He said the council was viewing local CCTV footage in a bid to catch the offender. Last year the council spent more than £100,000 clearing fly-tipped material.

Anyone with information in relation to the investigation should phone the environmental rangers on 01493 846478.
