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.”
