North Norfolk District Council has appealed for witnesses following the dumping off New Road, between Aylsham and North Walsham. The incident was reported on August 1. 

Councillor Nigel Lloyd, NNDC's environment portfolio holder, said: "It’s extremely disappointing to see waste disposed of like this, ruining our countryside and potentially creating hazards on our roads.
