EA crushes van linked to organised waste crime

The EA (Environment Agency) has seized and crushed a van linked to waste crime across a network of illegal sites in London and the surrounding counties.

The green Ford Transit  was destroyed by a licenced scrapyard, under EA  supervision, after it was seized by officers as part of an ongoing criminal investigation into the large-scale illegal dumping of commercial waste.

According to the agency, the sites it is investigating were entered illegally, often involving the forcing or cutting of locks and chains, or the removal of fencing securing the sites.
