Serial fly-tipper caught dumping tonnes of rubbish has truck crushed by council | London

A serial fly-tipper caught dumping tonnes of rubbish had his truck completely destroyed by a crushing machine.

George Smith, 40, had the vehicle he used to commit the crimes confiscated and crushed by the courts as punishment.

Croydon Council annihilated Smith’s trucks in a bid to warn off others from dumping rubbish.

Smith was responsible for the ‘most appalling’ fly-tipping ever seen in Croydon after dumping tonnes of rubble, wood and other building waste.

He charged unsuspecting customers a fee to get rid of their waste then dump it across the area.

But Smith was caught when a CCTV camera caught him tipping a huge load and the council took him to court, where he was found guilty of a string of offences.

Footage released by Croydon Council shows one of his trucks being crushed and thrown onto a scrapheap as punishment for his crimes.
