Croydon Council is trying to track down a fly-tipper who dumped three tonnes of building waste while driving along a residential street.

The driver was caught on CCTV dropping rubble, plaster and wood along Croham Manor Close off Croham Road in South Croydon at 1.55pm on Tuesday 15 March.

Officers found the van with the number plate X597 AAF, in Addiscombe on Thursday.

The van was half-full with waste when it was confiscated, and is now being examined.

Croydon Council suspects the unregistered van has been used for fly-tipping elsewhere in the borough.
