A notorious gang of fly-tippers known to operate in Newham appear to have moved their illegal activities into neighbouring boroughs.

Havering Council has confirmed its Environment Agency officers have seized two vehicles and invited six suspects for interview under caution after a park in Romford had five van-loads of rubbish dumped in it overnight earlier this month.

All six men were identified through evidence collected by Havering Parks officers who were forced to sift through the rubbish during its removal.

Councillor Osman Dervish, Havering’s cabinet member for the environment, said: “Through a strong team effort, we have been successful in disrupting this particular gang, who are well known to the Environment Agency, in connection with recent fly-tipping in Newham and Haringey.

“We take a zero-tolerance approach to those who are caught littering, polluting and fly-tipping.

“This case once again shows we will do everything in our power to bring any perpetrator to justice.”
