A warrant has been issued for an Ipswich grandfather who is accused of flytipping items of furniture with his grandson. 

Ioan and Costica Stefan were allegedly spotted fly-tipping the rubbish near their home address in Surrey Road last year. 

Only 19-year-old Costica Stefan appeared in Suffolk Magistrates Court this morning.

The pair were identified in CCTV as being responsible for fly-tipping "numerous bulky household items", according to a representative from Ipswich Borough Council in court.

The dumped furniture included a mattress, chest of drawers, brown sofa, a glass and metal TV stand, and a footstall, leading to large costs for cleaning up.

The Surrey Road residents took these and carried them over their heads to the next street, Prospect Street, on May 1 last year, the prosecution said. 

The court issued a warrant for the grandfather not backed by bail, meaning he could be arrested after he did not appear for the hearing. 

The magistrates told the 19-year-old that his grandfather should "give himself up" to police.

The younger Mr Stefan was released on bail to next appear on March 27 in the same court.
