Residents were furious after fly-tipping blocked a road in East Berholt near Ipswich this morning. The rubbish included old mattresses, fridges, masses of houshold waste and left drivers having to divert their journey due to the road being inaccessible.
Jason Alexander, founder of Suffolk-based waste management team Rubbish Walks, posted footage of the rubbish heap on Facebook.
He said: “It is unbelievable. This is probably one of the biggest fly-tipping incidents that I have seen around this area.
“There is a lot of it completely blocking this road, you can see there are cars having to turn around and back up.
“It is just unbelievable the amount of stuff that is here.”

A spokesman for Babergh District Council said: “We remain committed to tackling fly-tipping in our district and aim to deal with any reports of this occurring on public land within 48 hours.
“We were made aware of an instance of fly-tipping blocking Sandpits Lane in East Bergholt and our team have acted quickly to investigate and clear it.
“Our council is immensely grateful for the public’s help in reporting fly-tipping, which can be done quickly and easily via our website 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“We would also encourage anyone using a third party to dispose of waste to ensure they verify the waste carrier’s license, either on the Environment Agency website or by calling 03708 506 506.”
