An app to catch fly-tippers is created in Wales

An app has been created to crackdown on fly-tippers in Wales, which costs the taxpayer £2m a year.

Council waste officers will use a smart phone to log, photograph and plot fly-tipping incidents onto a GPS mapping system in real time.

It will pinpoint fly-tipping hotspots in Carmarthenshire, Gwynedd, Rhondda Cynon Taf, Newport, Denbighshire and Cardiff.

Currently, data is stored on to a spreadsheet.
