More than 100 sofas dumped in countryside
An investigation is under way after enough sofas to fill a furniture store were dumped in the Devon countryside.
Around 100 sofas and other items including armchairs were ditched in a remote area of North Devon.The waste was found tipped down a gully known as Breakneck Hole near Challacombe.
North Devon Council is now trying to establish where the furniture came from and who owns the land. Environmental warden Bill Hucker said: "Our investigations have been hampered by the location and the recent bad weather. We're also still trying to find out whose land this has been dumped on.
"In the meantime, we're hoping someone may recognise their old sofa among the photos we have, which could help us identify those responsible for the fly-tipping."

Councillor Rodney Cann, executive member for environment, said: "The sheer amount of fly-tipping is appalling. This is a beautiful part of the world, which makes this environmental crime particularly sad. We believe the furniture has been dumped by two or three lorry loads, probably by a commercial operator."
