Up to 40 tonnes of rubbish has been dumped alongside a rural road in what could be one of the worst fly-tipping incidents in years.
Witnesses saw two tractors and trailers dumping building material and household waste on the road which runs between Walsham-le-Willows and Finningham at about 9.30pm last night.
Police and the Environment Agency are now at the scene working to clear the waste from Finningham Road.
Rural crime officer Pc Mark Bryant said: “This is a large amount of industrial waste that has been left at the side of a public road, potentially causing a danger to motorists and other members of the public in the area.
“It will take a significant amount of time for the agencies involved to remove it. Acts such as this can cause serious damage to the local environment and I would urge anyone who knows who is responsible to contact us immediately.”
