    A great way to stop fly tippers - would our local rural crime team agree?

    This is the moment villagers banded together and blocked two fly-tippers who were dumping rubbish.

    Quick-thinking locals used their cars to barricade the vans as they unloaded waste on a country lane on the edge of Meriden in the West Midlands; pictures showed officers from Warwickshire Police seizing a white van following the incident on Wednesday.

    Police said it was "some of the worst fly-tipping we had seen in a long time." Two men were detained and ordered to reload their vehicles with rubbish, with the vans then being seized under the Environmental Act.

    Warwickshire Police wrote on their FB page: “We attended the Packington Estate near Meriden to a report of two vans fly-tipping. We attended in support of North Warwickshire Local Policing officers who had been called to the scene after local residents and workers on the estate had blocked the offenders in.

    “On arrival, we found some of the worst fly-tipping we had seen in a long time. We detained two males who were instructed to reload the two vans with all the rubbish dumped.

    “We supervised them cleaning up their mess and enjoyed a great cup of tea and slice of home made cake courtesy of the farmer’s wife. No cake and tea for these two offenders.”

    A police spokesperson added: "Cleaning up the results of fly-tipping is the responsibility of the local council and members of the public who discover incidents of fly-tipping should report it to them directly.

    "Officers from the Warwickshire Rural Crime Team also attended the scene and have now taken on the investigation and prosecution case."
