Angry villagers want to know who is responsible for fly tipping a massive load of wood, plastic rubbish and guttering in a country lane.  

It was off loaded onto Eye Hill Drove at Barcham, just off the A142.  

Mark Luts James posted photos of the fly tipping on social media in the hope “someone will recognize the rubbish”.

Numerous residents reported it to East Cambs Council but fortunately a number of volunteers took it upon themselves to remove it  

“Some locals collected all the wood for their log burners almost immediately after I posted it,” he said.
