Barking and Dagenham Council needs your help tracking down two fly-tippers plastered on its online ‘Wall of Shame’.

The scheme, launched after residents’ fury over rubbish being dumped throughout the borough, sees people help find, name and shame litter bugs caught in the act on CCTV.

Once an offender has been identified, the council says it will take every measure necessary to ensure they are caught and prosecuted.

Images show a man crossing the road in Barking’s Faircross Avenue, leaving a Tesco bag stuffed with litter by a utility box and making off around the corner.

The second culprit, a woman, dumps a large bag of litter in Heathway Service Road and walks away.

The videos can be seen on the council’s website by accessing the Wall of Shame page.

If you recognise either culprit, call 0208 724 8898 or email quoting the reference number on the video.
