A fridge freezer, gas bottles and tractor tyres are among items that have been dumped, as police investigate a spate of fly-tipping incidents across Waveney.

Beccles Police were called to Henstead on Friday, October 12 after a Beko fridge freezer was dumped in a lay-by close to the junction of the B1127 with the A12.

It comes after a spate of incidents were reported recently in Benacre. A Halesworth police spokesman said: “Between 9.30pm and 11.05pm on September 25, an offender has fly-tipped hazardous items on private land on the Benacre Estate.

“These include oxyacetylene tanks, gas bottles, tractor tyres and more. The hazards to wildlife and the environment are obvious.”

The items were dumped in Wood Lane, Benacre, with a further five incidents reported since the September 25 fly-tipping. Information to Suffolk Police on 101 quoting crime reference 37/55343/18.

The police spokesman added: “If you see items fly-tipped, it can be reported to East Suffolk Council via www.eastsuffolk.gov.uk/waste/fly-tipping/
