FARMER Tom Walne today called for a crackdown on fly tippers who are ruining the town.

The 68-year-old, of Ipswich, spoke out after Old Norwich Road has become a dumping ground for garden waste.

The latest bout saw leylandii tree clippings dumped in the middle of the road and garden waste in green plastic bags left under a "No Tipping" sign.
