Broken plastic items were among a huge pile of waste dumped near woodland.

East Suffolk Council had slammed fly-tippers who dumped rubbish in the alleyway between homes on Wollaston Road and Seago Street in Lowestoft in two separate incidents in March.

Anger was also expressed after waste was dumped on Mill Lane in Wrentham and on a field adjacent to Benacre Road in Henstead recently.

And now, the council has described the latest fly-tip to be reported in Pakefield, near to Blackheath Woods, as "unacceptable."

A council spokesman said: "A resident reported this huge fly-tip to us after someone dumped it at Blackheath Road.

"This is not okay!

"Not only it is unsightly, unacceptable and unnecessary, but fly-tipping also pose a real danger to the environment and local wildlife."
