Episode four of Barking and Dagenham’s gripping drama has been released.

CCTV Appeal follows fly-tippers in the borough who are caught on camera dumping waste.

Viewers are encouraged to identify and report culprits they recognise.

In episode four, one of the mini-series’ favourite villains returns – someone who’s been spotted fly-tipping three times already. There’s also a casual fly-tipper who arrives in pajamas and slippers, and two men who leave rubbish in Faircross Avenue.

Although not quite at the viewing figures of the BBC’s top dramas, the series has been seen more than 6,000 times on YouTube, with this episode reaching 1,200 views alone.

Councillor Margaret Mullane, cabinet member for community safety, said: “This isn’t about spying on people, it’s about having pride in where you live and being clear what’s right and wrong.

“We think chucking your rubbish on the street and leaving it to be someone else’s problem is wrong, but we can’t win this fight without the help of people to identify anyone they recognise.”
