More than 30 tyres were dumped in woodland next to a road near the north Norfolk coast.

North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) has appealed for witnesses to the fly tipping, which was reported on February 1.

Location of where the tyres were dumped, south of Wells-next-the-Sea in north Norfolk.

Emily Capps, the council's assistant director for environmental and leisure services, said: “It is very disappointing to see people disposing of waste by littering and spoiling our countryside. Fly tipping is an illegal act for which NNDC will seek a conviction.

"We hope that anyone who has any information surrounding this incident will come forward and help us catch the person, or people responsible.”
