Forget Love Island – Barking and Dagenham Council has launched a new series which is sure to get you gripped.

The Barking and Dagenham CCTV Appeal is a fortnightly video series which identifies people who’ve been illegally dumping waste in the borough.

With more drama than Eastenders, each episode will reveal incidents at well-known fly-tipping hotspots, with viewers being asked to get in touch if they recognise an offender.

The latest nail-biter saw people shamelessly dumping lamps, planks and boxes in various locations.

Councillor Margaret Mullane said: “We are working hard to clamp down on fly-tipping and other grime crimes in Barking and Dagenham, but we need residents’ help when it comes to identifying persistent offenders.

“The hope is that this series will act as a deterrent to fly-tippers, make us aware of those that are breaking the rules, and teach people how to dispose of their waste in the process.”

Watch the latest episode here. If you recognise a culprit, get in touch anonymously on 020 8724 8898 or email eyesoreandpublichealth@lbbd.gov.uk, and quote the reference number from the video.
