An investigation is underway after marijuana roots were dumped across three locations, a month after remnants of the illegal plant were found in a nearby Suffolk village.
East Suffolk Council have urged the community not to touch the large tip at Kessingland in South Lowestoft due to "the material which has been dumped".
A spokesperson the council said on Tuesday, September 10 officers visited all three fly-tipping sites and are sorting through the tip.
It is believed they are marijuana roots again, although the full contents need to be "examined".
East Suffolk's cabinet member for the environment, James Mallinder, said: "We are appalled by the sheer irresponsibility and shamelessness shown by people who have actually chosen to illegally dump this waste. This is not an isolated incident and we will not tolerate this in East Suffolk.
