Two men, who were caught on CCTV dumping a mattress and bed frame, have landed a £400 fine.

A sharp-eyed Redbridge Council camera operator spotted the pair carrying the furniture from a flat in Ilford and disposing the items incorrectly.

After the furniture was removed from the dumping site by the council, enforcement officers paid the address in question a visit and the men were given a penalty under the Environmental Protection Act.

A council spokesman said: “The council’s civic pride service has invested in new CCTV 4G cameras, which have been deployed at key locations to tackle and target fly-tips.

“In south Ilford alone the council has been able to issue 50 £400 penalty notices in the last month.

“CCTV footage and still photography are used to confront any offenders who deny their part and penalties are issued on the spot.”
