Breckland Council enforcement officers investigated the littering offence and the man admitted to littering and accepted the fine.

Gordon Bambridge, executive member for environmental services and public protection, said: "Breckland Council takes littering and fly tipping seriously, not only to protect environment, but also to help protect public safety.

"I simply dread to think what would have happened if a child had attempted to open the bag, and the resulting medical issues that could have been raised by this reckless behaviour."

Breckland residents can report any fly tip and littering incidents at www.breckland.gov.uk/littering
