A tyre mountain has sprung up at the side of a West Norfolk road.
Over the past six months, between two to three thousand tyres have been dumped in a field off Basin Road in Outwell.
Yesterday, all the tyres were pushed up against the side of the road, creating a several metre high wall.
Concerned resident Gary Hunns said: “Over the last six months someone has been dumping tyres on a piece of wasteground.
“Yesterday, they were all pushed up to the side of the road, creating a wall. There must be 2,000 to 3,000 tyres. It’s not what you expect in a rural village.”
