Help us identify suspected fly-tippers

Help in identifying two men suspected to have fly-tipped conifer cuttings is being sought.

The men were caught on camera at about 6.40pm on Saturday, January 22 depositing the waste in a Middlesbrough industrial estate.

Footage shows the white Transit Connect Van entering Riverside Park Road, the two men then exit the vehicle and fly-tip the conifer cuttings.

Middlesbrough Council would like to speak to the two men suspected of carrying out the dumping and are asking for any information as to anyone or anywhere that saw conifer pruning or removals on Saturday, January 22.

Council officers also want to make it clear that they are aware of unique markings on the bonnet and lower parts of the rear doors which will assist them in identifying the vehicle. They also believe the van has links to the Stokesley area of North Yorkshire.

Middlesbrough Mayor Andy Preston said: "Someone out there knows these individuals - let us know who they are and help us to stamp out incidents like this.

"Fly-tipping blights communities and we're not going to stand for in in Middlesbrough."

Any information on the identity of this male and his whereabouts can be sent in confidence to evidence@middlesbrough.gov.uk quoting reference number 567835, or call the Warden Hotline on 01642 228500 and ask to speak to a member of staff from the Environmental Flying Squad. Anti-social behaviour, fly-tipping and dozens of other offences can also be reported online.
