Council chiefs have launched a new fight against fly-tipping by posting CCTV footage of suspects online so they can be identified.

This latest campaign by Barking and Dagenham Council hopes that fed-up residents will recognise people featured in the footage.

A 24-second clip of a suspect in Kilsby Walk, Dagenham, which was uploaded on YouTube last week has attracted more than 4,500 views.

Cllr Darren Rodwell, leader of Barking and Dagenham Council, said: “Our residents deserve a clean and tidy borough and keeping the area clean is one of the council’s top priorities. We cannot achieve this without the goodwill of our residents, especially those who abide by our laws and those with a civic sense of duty who report fly-tipping, and littering to us.

“We will continue to do our bit to keep the borough safe and clean but we also need our residents to work with us to name, shame and identify those who break our laws or have disregard for our streets and neighbourhoods. We will pursue them and where we catch them we will prosecute.”Anyone who knows the man featured in the footage captured on September 12 at 4.41pm should call the council’s dedicated team on 020 8724 8898.
