Needles and condoms have been found near a school playing field in a Norfolk town.
The items were discover in Salisbury Way, Thetford, just 20 yards away from a primary school's playing field.
They were found by a dog walker at about 10am on Sunday, November 17 alongside a broken whiskey bottle.
Breckland Council has urged those who find dangerous rubbish to report it.
Alison Webb, Breckland Council's executive member for housing, health and environment, said: "People who come across flytips should report these to us as soon as possible so we can take action.

"We understand some people may be well-meaning in wanting to help tidy up small flytips such as this, however for their own safety we would discourage people from doing so in case they come in contact with potentially harmful material or sharp objects, such as needles or broken glass."
