A fly-tipper who drove six miles to dump household waste in a public bin has been fined.
An investigation began after East Harling Parish Council complained of the rubbish being put in bins at Market Place, which are intended for public street litter.
Enforcement officers from Breckland Council managed to track down the individual responsible, who lived in South Lopham.
They subsequently admitted dumping the waste and accepted a £60 fixed penalty notice.
Elsewhere, a Narborough woman has been fined £300 for fly tipping an electrical item next to a public bin, rather than disposing of it correctly.
