Breckland House car park as been a hot spot for fly tippers with fines being given for dumping in the area throughout 2019.

The culprit accepted a £300 fine. If not paid within 10 working days, the fine will rise to £400.

Gordon Bambridge, executive member for environmental services and public protection at Breckland Council, said: "The material that was dumped could have simply been taken to the local recycling centre for free.

"Instead, this person ignored our fly tipping signage and drove away without a care for the damage he's caused."
