Asbestos, a fridge freezer, car tyres, garden waste and a mattress are among the trash fly-tipped along a Norfolk village lane.

The rubbish has been dumped all along Upper Tumbril Lane, which crosses the A143 to Tumbrill Hill, near Harleston, which has angered dog walkers.

Posting on social media a man called it a "disgrace".

He said: "Went for a walk and the amount of fly-tipping is a joke.

"On Upper Tumbril Lane was a fridge freezer, car tyres, asbestos, garden waste, a mattress.

"Then crossing over the A143 to Tumbril Hill a sofa and lots of other rubbish."
