A person who travelled from the Welsh border to fly-tip in Norfolk has been fined.
It was one of two financial penalties dished out by Breckland District Council for dumping in the area.
A Forestry England ranger passed on information to the council's enforcement team, which tracked down the culprit responsible for littering at Lynford Water, near Mundford.
As well, a couple found discarding garden waste in Thetford Forest has also been fined £300 after photographic evidence was passed on to the council.
East director of forest management Alex Brealey said: "Fly-tipping costs Forestry England a significant amount each year meaning we can’t spend money on programmes that deliver for people, nature and the economy.

"The environmental harm caused by fly-tipping is considerable. We will work tirelessly to find the people responsible for fly-tipping and secure a prosecution."
According to Forestry England, "the majority" of the £100,000 spent on fly-tipping across sites in the East of England is at Thetford Forest.
