Cllr Champion told the Gazette: "The vast majority of people who live and work in Islington want to keep our streets clean and take great pride in keeping our borough beautiful.

"Fly-tipping is unsightly, selfish, and can be hazardous, and as such it is unacceptable in Islington.

"The council takes fly-tipping extremely seriously and we will always look to gather evidence and seek the maximum penalties available."
