A council in west cumbria has come up with a new way to fight environmental crime like fly tipping and dog fouling.
Allerdale Borough has launched a system on their website enabling smartphone users to report any mess they see using satellite technology to pinpoint exactly where the problem is.
The council say it will also save the tax payers money.
Allerdale Borough Council have created a state of the art app to help fight environmental crime.
The softwear allows locals to use their mobiles to report everything from dog fouling and fly tipping, to graffiti and missed bin collections.
The app is the first of its kind and they hope, if it is successful, it will be adopted by other councils.
