Is this Dagenham’s most brazen fly-tip?

A caravan full of rubbish has been found dumped in Leys Avenue, near the junction with Rainham Road South.

Some windows and a panel on the front appear to have been removed in order to fill it with rubbish - which looks to include garden waste, carrier bags and even a vacuum cleaner.

The fly-tipper responsible for leaving the dirty and dented vehicle on a busy junction may also face a parking fine when the law catches up with them - the caravan has been left on double yellow lines.

It comes as Barking and Dagenham Council launched its latest ‘wall of shame’ video in a bid to identify other suspected illegal dumpers.

The council has been contacted about the caravan.
