A fly-tipper caught in the act by a member of the public was shamed into picking all the rubbish back up.

Abrar Ul-Haq, from Langley Road in Slough, was caught dumping bags of sand and gravel into a drainage ditch at the side of Trenches Lane in Iver on June 29 last year.

The 60-year-old was spotted by a passing member of the public, who started filming and demanded he pick it all back up and put it in his van.

He did pick up everything he had dumped, while being filmed by the member of the public.

The footage was then handed to the fly-tipping enforcement team at Buckinghamshire Council.

Mr Ul-Haq was interviewed by enforcement officers at Slough Police Station, where he admitted to the crime.

In a court hearing at Wycombe Magistrates' on October 14, the fly-tipper was fined £317, ordered to pay costs and a victim surcharge totalling £732 - meaning he had to pay £1,049.

Bill Chapple OBE, Buckinghamshire Council's environment and climate change chief said: "A public-spirited passer-by was rightly upset to see someone dumping their waste in a country lane, and came to the council with video evidence that obtained a successful prosecution.

"Evidence from members of the public is an important part of our zero-tolerance battle against waste crime, but always remember that your own safety comes first.

"What's most important is evidence of the vehicle registration - we would advise against confronting the offender."
