An investigation has been launched after 200 tyres were found dumped on private land in Denbighshire.

They were tipped at top of a steep bank from a public road in Vivod, near Llangollen, and the majority rolled to the bottom.

The Environment Agency said it believed the tyres were dumped on 4 or 5 September.

People with information are asked to contact the Environment Agency on 0800 80 70 60.

An agency spokesman said: "We are investigating to find those responsible, but are appealing if anyone has any information, or has seen something suspicious.

"The cost of disposal of a car tyre is in the region of £1.44 per tyre and if anyone offers to take waste tyres away for less they should be treated with suspicion.

"You should always ask for a waste carriers licence before passing your waste."
