'Industrial-scale organised waste crime’ hits Surrey

The Environment Agency (EA) is calling for information from the public after a spate of waste crime over a 10-day period saw more than 260 tonnes of rubbish dumped in Surrey.

The EA revised estimates of the amount of waste dumped at a single site near Ockham on Thursday night to 120 tonnes from the 100 tonnes originally announced.

It was the seventh major fly-tip reported in Guildford in just 10 days.

A spokesman for the EA said: "We are in the middle of a fast-moving investigation, but we would still welcome any information the public can give us – lorries moving around the Guildford area late at night or parked in unusual locations for large vehicles; friends missing appointments at short notice."
