Can you help us catch these fly tippers?

  |  Published: Nov 24th 2016

Do you recognise this car? It's a red Ford Galaxy registration number R957MVO, and waste partnership enforcement officers would like to speak to its owners.

Our surveillance camera picture shows that the vehicle may have been used in a fly tipping incident off Welsh Lane near Biddlesden (not far from Turweston Aerodrome) in north Buckinghamshire – but the number plate is for a vehicle listed as previously scrapped.

If you remember seeing this vehicle recently, or if you recognise the individuals, please get in touch on 08453 301856 or via illegaldumpingcosts@buckscc.gov.uk.

Cllr Mike Smith, Chairman of the Waste Partnership for Buckinghamshire said: "Our surveillance cameras do an excellent job in catching people that decide to use the countryside and roads of Buckinghamshire as a dumping ground for their rubbish. But they aren't always enough – which is why, as with this case, we ask local people to help us catch such criminals."

Buckinghamshire County Council's Cabinet Member for Planning & Environment Warren Whyte said: "There is no excuse for dumping in our beautiful countryside - I do hope someone will be able to help us identify these men."

The surveillance camera programme is part of the Waste Partnership for Buckinghamshire's 'Illegal Dumping Costs' campaign. Since it began in 2003, the campaign has secured over 560 convictions through prosecutions brought by Buckinghamshire County Council against either fly tippers themselves or those who have failed in their duty to ensure that waste that ended up fly-tipped was being taken away by a registered waste carrier.
