§ Mr. Bob Ainsworth
Court proceedings information held centrally on the offence of dumping, under the Refuse Disposal (Amenity) Act 1978, cannot separately identify the dumping of motor vehicles from the dumping of anything other than a motor vehicle.
Information is not collected by London borough. Available data are therefore given in the table for the Metropolitan Police area.
