Sunday Mirror - - FRONT PAGE - BY STEPHEN HAY­WARD

A MAN shopped his wife af­ter she was pic­tured as a wanted fly-tip­per.

He called a coun­cil hot­line to name her af­ter see­ing footage on YouTube from a mo­bile CCTV cam­era in­stalled at a lit­ter­ing hotspot.

The woman was among 15 lit­ter­bugs hit with fixed penalty tick­ets of £150 af­ter they were filmed in Bark­ing, East Lon­don.

Coun­cil­lor Syed Ghani said: “Fly-tip­ping cost this coun­cil up­wards of £380,000 last year.

“We need to get tough on those flout­ing the law and hope any­one watch­ing the CCTV ap­peal, who recog­nises some­one fea­tured, will get in touch.”

Town hall chiefs be­hind the cam­paign would not com­ment on the cou­ple’s mar­i­tal sit­u­a­tion.
