The hunt is on to find the cheeky fly-tippers who dumped 40 tonnes of rubbish near a primary school in Dagenham - twice in one week.

The fly-tippers targeted the spot on Ripple Road, close to Goresbrook School on Sunday at around 2am and in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Barking and Dagenham Council have released CCTV images of one of the dumped piles alongside a picture of a Ford Focus and a truck that could be connected to the fly-tipping - which cost the town hall £8,262 to clear up.

Jonathon Toy, the council’s operational director of enforcement services, said: “This was one of the worst incidents of fly tipping to hit the borough.

“We want to hear from anyone who has information about this vehicle or people involved so we can take swift enforcement action.”

Anyone with information should call the council on 020 8724 8898 or email
