In a bid to reassure concerned residents, Waveney District Council says it is aware of several fly-tipping offences in the villages of Rushmere and Gisleham and is 'taking appropriate action'.

A spokesman for the council said: 'We believe these incidents are all connected and may have been dumped by the same individual(s).

'However, due to the materials which have been dumped and the multiple sites involved, it is important we carry out a full investigation. This means the waste has not been removed as quickly as usual.'

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to report this fly-tipping – we would now ask for your patience while we complete the investigation and would also ask for passers-by not to interfere with the waste.'
