Hunt for ‘one of Britain’s worst fly-tippers’

A fly-tipper who is suspected of using a van with fake number plates to dump piles of rubbish at four sites across South Wales is today being hunted by environment chiefs.

The suspect was caught on camera dumping mounds of rubbish on land near the former LG Electronics factory in Coedkernew, Newport in September. 

An image of the man, who is also suspected of fly-tipping at three sites in Cardiff, has since been issued by Natural Resources Wales in a bid to track him down.

The Government agency said the suspect used the car registration ND06 LWZ to illegally dump waste in his white Transit tipper van between September 2 and October 7 last year.  

At the site in Newport, which was allegedly visited by the fly-tipper two days in a row, the land was piled high with abandoned sofas, bathtubs, fridges and freezers.

There were also hundreds of car tyres, clothes, suitcases and doors scattered across the disused road, which is close to the M4. 

It was said the fly tipping was so significant that the rubbish could be seen on Google Earth.   

The man is also said to have abandoned mounds of trash near the Lamby Way Workshops and the Waterside Business Park in Cardiff. 

The most recent incident also took place in Cardiff, on Hendre Road.

It is feared the suspect, who is white and slim with dark hair, may now target other sites.

He is believed to have used false number plates on his white Ford Transit van to transport the waste. 

‘The person who repeatedly fly-tipped this waste clearly has little regard for the environment or the local communities and businesses who are left to face the problem,’ says Pamela Jordan, senior officer for Fly-Tipping Action Wales.

‘From the behaviour we’ve seen, we strongly believe they are likely to do this again, if they haven’t already, which is why we’re so keen to track down the individual for questioning.

‘Remember that as a householder, if you are paying someone to take away your waste you need to check that they are a registered waste carrier.

‘If your waste is fly-tipped, and can be traced back to you, you could face an unlimited fine and prosecution.’

Ms Jordan appealed for anyone who recognises the suspect to contact Natural Resources Wales.
