Fly-tipping: Panorama finds licensing system is failing to stop dumping

A BBC investigation has revealed how the government’s licensing system for waste carriers fails to stop fly-tipping.

Panorama filled a garage in Harlow with rubbish and then asked a licensed company to collect it.

Tracking devices had been placed in the rubbish by the programme team to see where the items ended up.

The team was shocked by what it found.

Panorama: Rubbish Dump Britain will air on BBC One on Monday 1 March at 19.35.
