Residents are angry a beauty spot on the Norfolk/Suffolk border has become a hot spot for fly-tipping.
A wooded area between Yew Drive and Glade Academy, in Brandon, has become a regular spot for people to dump their rubbish.
Katrina Forder, of Yew Drive, uses the path to go into the town centre. She said the fly-tipping happens regularly.
"It actually makes my blood boil," Ms Forder said. "We have some lovely wooded areas, especially where children play, and people think it's okay to dump their rubbish there.
"It's disgusting and it's right next to Glade primary school. Unfortunately it does happen a lot, especially in that area.

"I go that way into town most days and there's usually something been dumped there or opposite the school near some garages.
"Trouble is some people just don't care and don't have a conscience."
