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.
