Multiple infractions recorded during the dumping operation at Barnet UK News

Dozens of violations have been recorded by police after a two-day operation targeting drivers and vehicles suspected of being involved in fly spills in Barnet.

During the first two days of July, Edgware agents conducted a multi-agency operation in partnership with Barnet Council, the Environment Agency, the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency and the licenses for drivers and vehicles using London Gateway services as a stop and search site.

The vehicles suspected of being involved were identified by police motorcyclists, who escorted the vehicles to the stopping site where they were examined by advanced vehicle examiners and DVSA examiners, as well as controls by the DVLA and the environment agency.

In addition, NW BCU Safer Transport agents assisted DVLA in identifying untaxed vehicles parked on nearby residential streets.

During the two-day operation, which took place between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., dozens of vehicles were stopped.

A total of 40 of these vehicles carried commercial waste, while 59 received at least one form of enforcement from the police or partner agencies.

Eight untaxed vehicles were seized by the DVLA, and another 12 were reported as abandoned and were being processed by Barnet Homes for seizure.

In total, over 100 violations were identified, including waste permit violations, tachograph overweight offenses, cell phone use while driving, license offenses and lack of insurance.

Police Sgt. Geoff Parker said: “The operation has received high praise from all partner agencies involved and we are all keen to repeat the operation in the future.”

  • A driver has been reported for several offenses and arrested following a suspected positive drug test.
