Forest rangers have slammed fly-tippers who dumped a large pile of waste at a beauty spot.

The mound of rubbish dumped at the Wyre Forest

The mound of rubbish was found in the grounds of Wyre Forest, near to Bewdley, in Worcestershire.

The perpetrators were warned this was a serious criminal offence punishable by jail.

A spokesman for Forestry England, which looks after the forest, said: "Sadly one of our ranger team found this whilst out and about in the forest.

"It is an eyesore, pollutes the environment and can be dangerous to wildlife and the public.

"Fly-tipping of controlled waste is a serious criminal offence that carries a fine of up to £50,000 or prison sentence of up to 5 years."

Anyone who spots fly-tipping is asked to email wyre@forestryengland.uk.
