Bradford Council uses hidden cameras to try and catch fly-tippers

HIDDEN cameras have been installed at secret locations across the district to trap fly-tippers in the act.
Five covert CCTV cameras have been bought by Bradford Council in a bid to boost the number of illegal tippers being prosecuted.
Another four cameras have also been purchased which are due to be installed on lampposts to deter fly-tippers at hotspots in the city.
Steve Hartley, the council's environment director, said the aim was to be more proactive and put perpetrators in front of the courts.
He said: "The five cameras record onto a hard drive, and are designed to be hidden at locations where CCTV cameras are not suitable such as rural locations and lay-bys.

"They will increase our capacity to capture fly-tipping incidents and to prosecute offenders."
Mr Hartley also said the authority would be working with private landowners to identify long-term solutions to reduce and prevent fly-tipping at sites where rubbish is regularly dumped.
"This will include encouraging the landowner to sell or develop the site, fence off the land, or ensure waste is removed regularly from the site," he said.
