A CAR park has been closed after large hazardous waste with a leaking substance was dumped.

The car park at Smuggler's Road, near Burley, was reportedly closed just after 2pm on Tuesday, while the fly-tip is cleared up.

According to The New Forest team of Forestry England, a substance had leaked out from the tanks, while corrugated asbestos was dumped there.

They added: "If anyone saw anything or has dash-cam footage of the load, please get in touch."

Many were shocked at the state of the fly-tipping, labelling it "disgraceful" and "disgusting".
