The pictured van was seen on CCTV after waste was dumped on Grubbs Lane, a back road near Firs Park, on Tuesday.

Welwyn Hatfield borough councillor Stephen Boulton, executive member for environment, said: "Fly-tipping is anti-social, dangerous and a needless drain on tax payer's money.

"We hope that someone recognises the van or the waste that has been fly-tipped to help us find the person(s) responsible," said Cllr Boulton.

"I'd like to remind residents and businesses to follow the S.C.R.A.P code when arranging to dispose of their waste, more information can be found online at: one.welhat.gov.uk/S.C.R.A.P."

The council advises witnesses not to put themselves at risk by staying out of the way and not confronting the perpetrators.
