Fly-tipping increases but prosecutions are down

Local authorities in England secured 1,571 fly-tipping prosecutions in 2016-17, fall of about a fifth compared to 2,209 in 2007-08

The government says councils now have more powers to fine fly-tippers.

The Local Government Association (LGA), which represents councils, wants to see a "more effective legal system".
