Councillor Anita Harrison, portfolio holder for waste management at Hull City Council, said: “Everyone plays a role in looking after our environment and helping to tackle fly-tipping and by taking a tough stance on enforcement, we can deter any potential offenders.

“We will prosecute, and when convicted we will name and shame in the hope that we can stamp out this anti-social behaviour.

“We encourage members of the public not to shrink from reporting any perpetrators they see.”
