A fly-tipping investigation has been launched by Isle of Man police after about 30 lorry tyres were dumped.

The tyres were found on land next to the Grand Island Hotel in Ramsey.

Earlier this year, Ramsey Commissioners imposed a ban on the town's amenity skip service after an increase in fly-tipping activity.

The local authority voted narrowly in favour of stopping the service on a trial basis because officials felt it was being abused.

Skips were previously situated at the Lezayre Estate and the rear of Gray's Gardens, off Queen's Pier Road, on alternate months.
