A gang of brazen fly-tippers are being hunted after they dumped 21 fridges along a single country lane in broad daylight.

The shameless group were captured on camera driving their lorry into Barr Lakes Lane in Aldridge, West Midlands. at around 3pm on Monday.

Their lorry, which did not have a registration plate, then unloaded the industrial sized fridges into the middle of the road before driving away.

Shocking pictures show dozens of the appliances scattered along the narrow country lane, which is near a beauty spot and nature reserve.

Walsall Council has now released images of the lorry and the discarded fridges in a bid to track down the culprits.

Councillor Julie Fitzpatrick said: ‘This is a blatant and dangerous act of fly tipping in an area where signage states CCTV is in operation.

‘Unfortunately, the vehicle in the image does not appear to be displaying a registration plate.

‘However, it is quite distinctive and by releasing the image we hope that residents may recognise it and help us to identify the perpetrators.

‘If anyone is able to help in identifying the vehicle, and this leads to a successful prosecution, the council would be delighted to reward the person concerned with ?100.

‘Barr Lakes Lane is subject to repeated fly tips and this results in significant council resources being used to remove and dispose of the waste.’

Councillor Chris Jones, Portfolio Holder for Clean and Green, added: ‘I’m really impressed with how quickly Clean and Green got staff on site and started clearing away the fridges.

‘However, I’m not so impressed that Walsall tax payers are having to fund clean ups like this.

‘Whilst it can be tempting for residents and businesses to take up a cheap offer to remove waste items, they should know that they have a duty of care to check that they are dealing with legal operators, otherwise they could end up in court.’
