A criminal investigation is being launched by Thanet council after a flytip in Margate.
A pile of waste, including wood and an old mattress, was tipped in All Saints Avenue at the entrance to the industrial estate.
Thanet council was notified this morning and an enforcement team visited the site and found evidence pointing to the source of the rubbish.
A council spokesman said: “Our enforcement team has visited the fly-tip and found evidence of the source of the waste. We will therefore be pursuing this as a criminal investigation. The waste has been stacked and will be collected by street cleansing tomorrow.”
