Just one of the 13 full cans left at the Devil’s Punchbowl near Thetford has a label, marking it as triple QX standard thinners, a paint cleaner.

The Devil’s Punchbowl is a fluctuating Mere that received its name due to its tendency to ebb and flow.

Nigel Monument was visiting the area when he saw the fly-tipped items. He said: “I am a retired fire officer so realise the risk to children playing, wildlife and forestry from the mindless illegal disposal of this kind of product.”

Mr Monument said he also saw tyres left in the area.
