Suffolk farmer’s anger over toys from Great Yarmouth tipped on his land
PUBLISHED: 12:39 22 June 2011
A SUFFOLK farmer is angry about a crop of fly-tipped toys that have sprung up on his land, apparently from the Great Yarmouth area.
Richard Wright, of White House Farm, Barnby, near Beccles, says he is used to finding illegally dumped rubbish on his land but that this latest unwanted collection thrown into a field is distinctive and accompanied by paperwork relating to addresses in Yarmouth.
Although it may be that the owners of the large cuddly toys had paid someone to dispose of their material in good faith he is keen to find out where it came from so innocent landowners like him don’t have to pay the clean-up bill.
Along with the large toys are several mattresses, cabinets, suitcases and garden equipment.
“Its an absolute nightmare,” he said. “It is not very nice to handle this stuff. I have moved it all about with two fingers. They are not the sort of thing that everyone has and someone may have seen them in someone’s house or know something about it. There is Yarmouth paperwork but it may be nothing to do with them, they possibly paid someone to take it away who subsequently dumped it.”
