Two of Britain's worst fly-tippers have been caught on camera while dumping rubbish on deserted roads.

Bradley Lynn, 23, and Connor Williams, 28, have been filmed carrying stacks of waste to leave at deserted roadsides.

Environment chiefs launched an investigation to find the fly-tippers after they used fake number plates to carry out the crimes.

CCTV footage shows Lynn and Williams apparently travelling in an untaxed and unregistered tipper van.

The pair were spotted dumping rubbish at a former LG site in Newport, South Wales, in September and October last year.

The site has been dubbed the "Road to Nowhere" as it has become a hotspot for fly-tipping.

Lynn, of Splott, Cardiff, and Williams, of Trowbridge, pleaded guilty to an offence under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

Magistrates in Newport fined each man £400 and ordered them to pay costs of £1,100 and a victim's surcharge of £40.

Newport city council said it worked with Gwent Police and Fly Tipping Action Wales to bring them to court.

After the case, Councillor Roger Jeavons said: "I would like to thank the public for providing information that led to the identification of these two people.

"As well as fines, they could have faced being sent to prison for this crime and I hope this prosecution will act as a deterrent to others who illicitly dump waste.

"Residents should also note that if they employ others to clear waste and it's not disposed of legally then they would also be liable and could be prosecuted.

"We will not hesitate to take action against those who deliberately dump refuse on our land.

"It is a crime that blights our communities, the city and our environment and it will not be tolerated."
