Cans of an unidentified substance have been left at a woodland spot.
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.

A Breckland Council spokesman previously said it is committed to tackling fly tipping, adding: “Our enforcement officer has successfully resolved a number of cases, largely as a result of positive engagement with local people reporting incidents and through placing educational material at previous sites of fly tips.”
