A public car park at a nature reserve has had to be closed off after a large quantity of waste was fly-tipped there.
Carpets, doors, windows and other rubble was left blocking the access to Stony Stratford Nature Reserve in Milton Keynes on Sunday.
Volunteers at The Parks Trust, the charity which runs the reserve, described it as “a substantial fly-tipping incident”.
A spokeswoman said it had been reported to police.
The rubbish has been left in-situ so that police can sift through and look for information that might lead them to where it originated.
The spokeswoman said as the waste was fly-tipped on private land, the charity would be responsible for its removal, which is likely to cost about £1,000.
