IT WAS not so much the house that Jack built as the home that Norwich furnished.
In just one week enough fly-tipped goods have been collected in the city to kit out an entire house including bathroom, gym, study, kitchen, bedroom, nursery and even a garden.
And for the musically inclined, there was even a working electric organ to add to the entertainment in the living room.
Norwich City Council and CityCare collected 260 items - including 21 sofas, eight cookers, three exercise bikes and eight beds - during a fly-tipping awareness week which has been running since Monday.
They were set out as rooms to highlight the extent of the problem.
Each time a fly-tip is reported by the public, council officials investigate to see if there is evidence to link it back.
- 1 Teenager 'kicked and punched' by man during Ipswich assault
- 2 Cyclist left with 'potentially life-changing injuries' after Ipswich crash
- 3 Tragic loss of 'kind and gentle' Aayush at 17 devastated family
- 4 Appeal to trace driver after cyclist knocked unconscious in crash
- 5 Five-bedroom home with 'beautiful countryside views' on market for £800K
- 6 Thatch roof of cottage 'fully alight' in village near Needham Market
- 7 'I slept at the store' - Teen queues for 14 hours as Tim Hortons opens
- 8 Man dragged former partner from car and kicked her in assault
- 9 Hank's Deli closes its doors but remembers food bank
- 10 Inquest into death of 32-year-old woman in Barham crash postponed
If the culprit is found they are formally interviewed at City Hall before it is decided how to deal with them.
The sad thing is that all of the items collected during the week, many of which are reusable, will be taken to the household waste centre.
