Black bin bags full of rubbish were left strewn across a part of the Suffolk countryside.

Police from the Stowmarket Safer Neighbourhood Team Tweeted that they had come across the flytipping in Framsden, about 10 miles north of Ipswich, on Friday, October 19.

Officers Tweeted: “#StowSnt on patrol, found this lot dumped at #Framsden. If you see this happening, please call 999.”

During 2017, councils spent nearly £400,000 clearing up fly-tippers’ mess in Suffolk and Essex.

Figures from Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) showed the number of reported incidents in Suffolk fell from 3,100 to 2,884 between 2015/16 and 2016/17 – a fall of 7%.

The number almost halved in Ipswich, from 976 to 579.
