A man has been captured on camera shamelessly fly-tipping waste in the middle of a High Wycombe street.

The footage was released on social media and shows the man dropping binbags of waste next to Benjamin Road.

Bucks Fly Tipping urged local residents to work together to minimise waste during the Covid-19 outbreak.

It comes as the CLA - which represents landowners and farmers - urges people to report any fly-tipping incidents to their local authorities. 

The organisation said the closure of household recycling centres across Bucks is "understandable" during the current health crisis - but added that it was not an excuse to dump rubbish. 

Bucks Fly-tipping said residents should show "community spirit" by holding onto waste until the recycling centres are back open again. 

CLA South East Regional Director North Michael Valenzia said: “It is shocking to hear reports of fly-tipping incidents especially at this time of lock-down. 

"The closure of tips is understandable, but can’t be used as an excuse to dump rubbish in our countryside. 

“Farmers and landowners are victims of this crime yet have to clear up fly-tipped waste from their land, which we estimate costs on average about £900 per incident. 

"If they don’t they face prosecution themselves, while the environmental impact is also considerable, especially if items such as asbestos are dumped.”
