The site, which can be seen by walking down the historic Maltsters Score off Lowestoft High Street, is covered in rubbish including a gym bench, discarded shopping trolley and a tent.

Among the other items are an old fridge, clothing and sleeping bags, while several shards of broken glass are scattered across the grass and undergrowth.

Business owners on High Street and Whapload Road, from which the land is visible, say the waste has been there for several months and has been steadily building.

The land sits behind three unoccupied business premises and is thought to be privately owned. Waveney District Council says it is currently trying to establish who is responsible for it before taking further action.
