This is the moment a pair of flytippers were caught red-handed on camera in Forest Gate.

The two men can be seen dragging a fridge-freezer across Upton Avenue before dumping it next to another on Doris Road.

They then made off in a white, 2006 Vauxhall Vivaro van past St Antony’s Primary School at about 11.30pm on Friday (November 16).

The person doing the filming, who asked not to be named, said: “I couldn’t believe it when I spotted them.

“It wasn’t that late really and there were still people around. One of them was clearly struggling with the weight because he dropped his end a couple of times.

“It was like watching the Chuckle Brothers doing flytipping.”

The pair were dressed in dark clothes with one wearing black sports bottoms with a white stripe down the legs and a skull cap or beanie.
