Drivers have been forced to find alternative routes after a road was blocked by fly tipped waste. 

Pebmarsh Road, near Bures, is currently blocked by the rubbish that was spotted by drivers this morning. 

The garden waste, which consists of artificial turf, wood shavings and logs, has meant a number of people have had to turn around and use another route.  

What do you do if you see flytipping?

There is guidance on what you should and should not do if you discover fly-tipped waste.

The law says, those who drop litter - including from a vehicle - can be issued an 'on the spot' Fixed Penalty Notice of £80. You could also be prosecuted in court and fined up to £2,500.

Dumping waste, or flytipping, on any land that has no environmental permit or letting others do so on your behalf, is a criminal offence that can carry large fines or prison sentences.

Members of the public that come across flytipping should make a note of the date and time they saw the tipping, its location and take photographic evidence if it is safe to do so to send to their local council.

If you see flytipping happening make a note of how many people are involved and a description of what they look like, any vehicles involved, and what has been dumped.

If an incident is in progress, members of the public are asked to call 999 to report it.

Members of the public should not touch the waste or disturb the site as there may be evidence that could lead to prosecution.

Councils have online forms to report flytipping which can be found on their websites.
