Middlesbrough Council on Filthy Rotten Scoundrels

The council teams who keep Middlesbrough’s streets clean and crime-free are the stars of a forthcoming TV series.

The Enviro-Crimes Unit and Community Protection Service are featured in the latest series of the BBC’s ‘Filthy Rotten Scoundrels’.

The programme focuses on the problems caused by fly-tipping and the work of dedicated enforcement staff throughout the country to tackle it.

Middlesbrough’s efforts are featured once again in the latest series, with the town making its first appearance in Episode 2 on Tuesday, October 25.

The town’s clean-up operations are featured in five of the 15 episodes made by Leopard Films who were commissioned by the BBC to make the series.

Councillor Julia Rostron, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive Member for Community Protection, said: “Middlesbrough is as clean as it’s ever been, and the fantastic work of the Enviro-Crimes Unit has played a great role in that.

“I’m delighted that their work is getting this kind of national recognition, and it helps to spread the message that we will track down and prosecute those responsible for fly-tipping.”

Key dates when Middlesbrough will be featured:

  • Tuesday, October 25, 11am BBC1: Episode 2, CCTV
