A Lynn resident has claimed that not enough is being done to combat flytipping close to a West Norfolk beauty spot.

Concerns have been growing over the level of rubbish being dumped in the Sandy Lane area of Bawsey.

But Paul Pulford claims both the borough council and the police failed to act properly when he reported a case of flytipping at nearby Leziate last month.

He said he had reported the incident on May 10, giving a description of the van in which the material had been taken to the site and the person he says he saw dumping it.

But, although the waste was cleared, he says no further details were taken from him about those responsible.

And Mr Pulford described the response he had received as “pathetic.”

He said: “I’m so angry about it. They want people to ring them, but when you do they don’t do anything about it.”

The council says it has cleared waste from the area on three separate occasions in the last month, including the one raised by Mr Pulford.

Norfolk Police said it did not investigate flytipping cases.
