Councils had to clear up more than a million incidents of fly-tipping last year in England, as figures show the problem continues to rise.

Local authorities reported 1,072,000 incidents in 2018-19, up 8% on the 998,000 cases in 2017-18, the latest statistics from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) revealed.
