BBC1 Dom on the Spot

There are some familiar faces back on BBC1 this week.

Pendle Council’s Environmental Crime Team is once again starring in the latest daytime series of Dom On The Spot created by Twofour.

It started on Monday and will run every week day at 11am for the next two weeks.

People’s champion Dom Littlewood fronts the programme which follows law enforcers across the country as they dole out fines for offences, such as fly-tipping and dropping litter and cigarette butts.

Dom explores why fines are dished out and questions why people break the law on a day to day basis.

And since late May, David Alexander, Jonathan Yurek, Lesley Brooks, Matty Hargreaves and Jeff Brown have been followed by a camera crew as they carried out their daily patrols.

The Team tackled fly-tipping, dropped litter and cigarette butts and dumped car parts amongst other things.

David Alexander, Senior Environmental Crime Officer, said: “It was fantastic to be involved in the series again.

“It’s such a great opportunity to showcase the work we do on behalf of residents to ensure the borough is an attractive and clean place to live!”

Councillor Mohammed Iqbal, Leader of Pendle Council, added: “Thank you to our Environmental Crime Team for getting involved in the BBC series once again.

“The Team does a fantastic job tackling many of the issues which affect our residents’ lives and this goes some way to showing some of the work they do.

“In Pendle we take environmental crime extremely seriously.  

 “Graffiti, fly-tipping, dog fouling, litter, bags of rubbish and bins left out all make our streets look untidy and dirty and are all crimes.

“It costs us a huge amount of money keeping the borough free from litter and mess and we’ve adopted a zero tolerance approach. 

“Please report any incidents to us on our website – www.pendle.gov.uk/envirocrime  or by calling (01282) 661743.”

If you forget to record an episode of Dom on the Spot they’ll all be available on the BBC iPlayer.
