A spokesperson from FE said the load posed a risk to animals in the area and appealed for anyone with information to get in touch.

“One of Forestry England’s Rangers has already arranged for the removal of potentially hazardous waste from our Whitemoor Pond car park near Brockenhurst, as it poses a threat to people and commoners' livestock.

"The waste contained roofing felt, guttering and huge bags of fibreglass loft installation, which has been checked for evidence.

"Forestry England works closely with the New Forest District Council to tackle flytipping and this includes investigating flytips, prosecuting those responsible whenever possible and raising awareness with householders and businesses about how to dispose of their waste correctly.

"We urge all businesses and householders to check that the company or individual who is offering to take their waste has a waste carrier’s licence.

"This can be checked on the Environment Agency’s website. If they do not have a licence, do not use them.”

Those with information on the flytip should ring Forestry England on 0300 067 4600.
