A fly tipper has been fined £200 for dumping garden waste along a popular walking and cycling route in Aylsham.

Broadland District Council said it issued the fine after the individual was caught tipping grass cuttings on Marriott's Way.

John Fisher, the council's portfolio holder for environmental excellence, said: 'If you don't want it rotting in your garden then no-one else wants it rotting in the beauty spots where they like to spend their leisure time.

'We want people to be aware that this is not acceptable and we will take action. There are plenty of other options whether it's composting, taking it to the recycling centre or subscribing to a garden waste service.'

The council previously issued a notice to someone who was discovered dumping garden waste on the Blickling Estate.
