Message received from East Ely Team, East Anglia Area, of the Environment Agency dated 28th September 2018

“Officers from our team have visited residents and the Glazewing site on 17, 24 and 29 September in respect of the increase in flies in the area. 

We confirmed on 17 September that there was an issue with flies on the Glazewing site have required the company to take action to address the issue by spraying insecticides and ceasing accepting a certain type of waste which has attracted the flies. Our inspection today, 29 September, has noted a decrease in the number of flies on the site indicating that the measures they are now employing are being effective. However, as flies are in the wider environment around West Dereham it may take a little while before a decrease in their numbers is seen.

We will continue to monitor the situation and visit the area and Glazewing site to ensure that the situation is improving.”

Residents are currently encouraged to report any incidents to
the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk
