- Video shows a woman being accused of leaving furniture by the side of the road
- She’s told: ‘People like you do this then innocent people have to pay…disgusting’
- Fly-tipping is illegal and could result in a fine of up to £50,000 or a year in prison
This is the moment a landowner appears to catch an alleged fly-tipper dumping a table and a desk outside their gate – and forces her to put the rubbish back in her car and take it away with her.
Footage posted on social media shows a woman picking up furniture which was left by the side of a road in Enfield, north London and putting it into the boot of her car.
Another woman, who is recording the incident, accuses her of fly-tipping, which is illegal and could result in a fine up to £50,000 or a year in prison.
An ugly verbal confrontation breaks out between the two parties and the woman filming it vows to shame the alleged fly tipper on social media.
The accused woman notices she is being filmed and asks: ‘Do you have to do this?’
The landowner replies: ‘Yes I absolutely do have to. It’s people like you that do this and then innocent people have to pay your costs, yes? Disgusting.’
A man then appears and adds: ‘Are you having a f***ing laugh? You’re tipping this outside my gate.’
The woman is seen putting furniture from the side of the road into the boot of her car, pictured left, and, pictured right, asks the person filming ‘Do you have to do this?’
The argument rages on as the woman continues to pack away the items into her car.
The man then tells the woman filming to take note of the vehicle’s number plate.
When the apparent fly-tipper refuses to give her name, the woman filming tells her she will ‘name and shame’ her on Facebook.
