Another police crackdown on flytipping in Lyndhurst sees 40 vans stopped and driver arrested
FORTY vans were stopped and a driver arrested as police and local authorities carried out another anti-flytipping operation in Lyndhurst.
Officers again teamed up with New Forest District Council, the national park authority and Forestry England for the crackdown in the village centre yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon.
Of the vehicles pulled over, two were seized for having no tax, no insurance and no licence.
Three prohibition notices were issued, two for insecure loads and one for a mechanical defect.
Tickets were also issued to five drivers for not wearing seatbelts, two for having no insurance and one for not having an MOT.
Five drivers were ordered to produce their waste carriers licence to NFDC.
Officers arrested one driver after they provided a positive drugs wipe for cannabis.
One was also given a community resolution for possessing the class B drug.
A police Facebook post afterwards said: “We are committed to tackling flytipping across the New Forest and these operations will continue throughout the summer.”
