An ITV News investigation has revealed fly-tipping is on the rise in some parts of the UK.
An Freedom of Information (FOI) request was sent to councils across Britain asking how many incidents of fly-tipping were reported between November 2015 and December 2016.
Out of the 264 councils that responded to the request, Haringey in London had the highest number of fly-tipping incidents.
Outside of London, Manchester was second with 30,386 reported offences, averaging 77 a day.

"Fly-tipping is an epidemic, it's reached crisis levels and something needs to be done about it."
"Local authorities are overwhelmed with instances of criminal fly-tipping and we need to address this urgently," she added.
