CBS Reality Gets Down And Dirty In March
By James Whittington, Monday 29th February 2016
Filthy Rooten ScoundralsFilthy Rotten Scoundrels is a dynamic new series that highlights the work of environment officers across the UK, as they tackle astonishing and flagrant cases of fly-tipping.

The hard-working and tenacious officers often go undercover to track down criminals who dump thousands of tons of rubbish on our city streets and country lanes. Investigators call on police back-up for elaborate sting operations, and scan through hours of surveillance footage. More than 3,000 fly-tipping incidents happen each day, costing tax payers £55 million a year to clear up.

In episode 1 enforcement officers in north-west London set up an elaborate sting operation to catch a car-scrapper who has fly-posted illegally, right across the borough.

Plus, one Bristolian’s outrageous fifteen-year fly-tipping spree comes to an abrupt end, when a local resident catches him in the act on camera. The scoundrel was jailed for two-and-a-half years.

Get down and dirty with with the Filthy Rotten Scoundrels March 14th at 12.15pm and 7.20pm.
