A recent spate of fly-tipping incidents has riled people living in west London.

There have been heaps of complaints over rubbish dumped in Hounslow, Ealing and near Hillingdon, this week.

From "hazardous" fly-tipping under the A40 near the Grand Union Canal, to rubbish dumping on private land in Hounslow and litter plaguing the streets of Ealing, there are some serious concerns.

However councils have said they are taking action against fly-tipping and issue thousands of fines with Ealing deploying a fly-tip enforcement crew and Hounslow looking into install CCTV to catch the culprits.

Ealing 'dirtiest it's been in 35 years'

The streets of Ealing are ridden with so much rubbish residents are having to resort to picking up litter themselves, one resident claimed.

June Burnett of Cuckoo Estate, who moved to the borough in 1982, accused Ealing council of failing to clean up the mess, adding "it is a sight for sore eyes."

Fly tipping has become a big issue since the introduction of controversial new wheelie bins in June last year.

Ealing council has said since the introduction of its fly-tip enforcement crews in August, complaints are down 46% and nearly 4,000 fines have been issued.

Labour Cllr Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for environment, transport and leisure, said: "Fly-tip in Ealing then it is clear we will find you and we will fine you."

The combination of mattresses, appliances and wood has raised fire safety concerns after these images were revealed by local resident Maggie Ditchburn.

Some of the images taken on Saturday (February 18), show the appalling mess which Mrs Ditchburn said "is becoming hazardous" and "the possibility of a fire could cause damage to the fly-over and traffic chaos."

It is not clear whether Highways England or Buckinghamshire Council are responsible for the land in question.

Earlier this month getwestlondon also reported how a Feltham homeowner was fined after men hired to dispose of the waste dumped it a few streets away.
