A person shamelessly dumped rubbish outside a house in broad daylight. The CCTV footage shows a van, owned by building supplies firm Graham – the Plumbing Merchant, reversing along a lane between houses before a person gets out and begins unloading rubbish onto the road.

The incident took place on Hazelbottom Road in Crumpsall, Manchester, on September 5 at around 3.30pm, reports Manchester Evening News.

Off-camera a second pile of cardboard was also tipped at the end of the lane.

The neighbour whose CCTV caught the fly-tipper in action said: “It’s disgusting. I came back from work and saw the piles of rubbish where I normally park my car.

“I checked the CCTV and couldn’t believe it. I was shocked to be honest.

“As a community we’re really upset. We work hard to try keep our area clean, so when you see people like this who just have no respect it’s upsetting.

“It’s not fair on the people who live here and on the council who have to clean it up.”

A Manchester council spokesperson said: “We are aware of an incident of fly-tipping that has taken place recently in Crumpsall and we are investigating the offence further.

“Fly-tipping is not tolerated in Manchester and our teams work hard to shift the waste and prosecute offenders.

“To add to our own proactive investigations, we ask residents who have any information or evidence to contact us via www.manchester.gov.uk/flytipping, so that we can take action.”

Chris Lee, the regional director for Graham – the Plumbers’ Merchant, said: “Thank you to the Manchester Evening News for bringing this matter to our attention.

“The employee involved has now been suspended pending further investigation.”
