The audacious ‘flytipper’ left parents and carers with no choice but to walk children on the road at Baxter Close in Wisbech after blocking the pavement.

Clear CCTV images from one resident’s home show the white van stop with the backdoors open, before the driver dumps the fridge.

The incident happened at just after 10.30am on Wednesday, September 16 and residents are calling for the driver to come back and remove what he left.

One said: “To the driver of this van who thought it would be a good idea to fly tip down Baxter Close, unfortunately for you it was caught on camera.

“I can’t believe the places they dump stuff; they don’t even find a rural spot so they’re not seen.

“Well done for passing info on to the right people, I hope he gets a big fine.”
