A council spokesperson said: "Can you help us catch this fly-tipper?

"We’ve had multiple tips in rural areas between Wisbech and King’s Lynn in the last month and believe many of them are related.

"We think someone is offering to take rubbish away, but instead of taking it to the tip, they’re making money by dumping it illegally."
