BCP Council vowed its own officers would continue to investigate all flytipping offences in a bid to fine or prosecute those who carry them out.

“A flytipping incident in the layby in Ambury Lane was reported to us on Monday morning,” a spokesperson said.

“All flytipping incidents will be investigated and where evidence is found, fixed penalty notices and/or prosecution through courts will be considered for the offender.

“We would encourage anyone witnessing flytipping to report to us at online.bcpcouncil.gov.uk/services/flytipping, leaving your details so officers have the best chance of securing evidence and holding offenders to account.”

Facebook users vented their frustration at its frequent occurrence. One wrote: “This is becoming the alternative waste recycling centre for Christchurch.

“Isn't there some way this can be prevented? It's almost a weekly occurrence. Some discreet CCTV would surely help.”

Police carrying out a speed crackdown on the B3078 Roger Penny Way near Fordingbridge on the same day stopped and searched a van containing scrap metal they suspect was about to be flytipped. The driver was found to be wanted by officers.

Those with information about the Burton flytip should contact Dorset Police by calling 101 or by visiting www.dorset.police.uk
