Among the items are parts of a sofa, a toilet seat, tyres and several black bin bags full of rubbish.

Arun District Council is responsible for removing fly-tipping in the area, although according to a statement on its website it does not remove fly-tipping from private land.

The statement reads: "Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of waste on either public or privately owned land (although we do not remove fly-tipping from private land).

"It could be one bag of rubbish, or large quantities of waste dumped from trucks.

"It would be useful if you could provide as much as the following information as possible: exact location, vehicle registration number and details, description of all persons responsible, description of fly-tipped items, date and time of the offence.

"Please do not approach the fly-tippers or put yourself at risk."
