20-tonne lorry crushed after being linked to 28 fly-tipping offences

This is the moment a lorry linked to 28 major fly-tipping offences across the West Midlands was crushed by the Environment Agency on Friday.

The 20-tonne vehicle was seized by officers last year as part of an investigation into large scale dumping in the region.
