Fly tip-off nails wife

The People - - NEWS FEATURES - By Stephen Hay­ward

A FLY-TIP­PER was re­ported to the lo­cal coun­cil – by her hus­band.

He rang a hot­line af­ter see­ing a Youtube video of CCTV shot at the lit­ter hotspot and named two other men at the same time.

The woman is among 15 peo­ple hit with £150 fines af­ter they were filmed in Bark­ing, East Lon­don.

Each dumped fur­ni­ture and other house­hold items.

Footage from 14 fly-tip­ping “hot spots” on hous­ing es­tates is up­loaded to Youtube ev­ery fort­night.

Cllr Syed Ghani said fly-tip­ping cost the coun­cil over £380,000 last year.

He added: “We need to get tough on those flout­ing the law and we hope any­one watch­ing the CCTV ap­peal who recog­nises some­one will get in touch and help us catch the cul­prits.”
