A council street cleaner was caught dumping fly-tipped rubbish from a Birmingham street onto a family's driveway.

The CCTV footage shows the man pull up in a green Birmingham City Council van and head over to a pile of rubbish lying under a tree outside a home on Starbank Road, Small Heath.

The employee drags a large rug across the pavement and dumps it onto the driveway of the house.

He then goes back to the tree and picks up the remaining rubbish - a saucepan - and throws it onto the property before casually driving off.

The homeowner and father-of-one, Haroon Tariq, 29, said he was disgusted when he saw what the street cleaner had done.

He had installed the CCTV camera because he suspected passerby had been fly-tipping, but instead caught the council workman dumping the rubbish at his home.

Birmingham City Council says it has suspended the street cleaner following the incident.
