Cllr Eleanor Southwood, Brent Council’s cabinet member for the environment, said: “It’s completely unacceptable when neighbours do not clear up large amounts of waste outside their properties. It brings down the appearance of the area and everyone suffers.”

Dennis Lewis, enviro-crime manager of Brent Council, added: “We will investigate complaints of untidy land, littering or illegally dumped rubbish and will take all necessary measures to investigate the incidents and will not hesitate to prosecute the offenders.”
