THIS is the moment a fly-tipping “victim” hits back and throws TVs, tyres and doors back over the alleged culprit’s fence.
Six skip-loads of rubbish was allegedly dumped on Cliff Hamilton’s property in Hounslow, West London.
He was sent a letter warning him that rubbish was allegedly being dumped on his land.
Mr Hamilton claimed he was sent photos of his neighbours stomping down the rubbish.
“I was sent photos of the neighbours in my garden treading down the rubbish. The rubbish could not have come from any other place and the fact that non of the overgrown plot was trampled down proves it can only have come from my neighbour,” he said.
But Mr Hamilton’s neighbour Gurvinder Singh Luthra, 68, has hit back, claiming he is innocent and that he will sue.
“I don’t know where the rubbish came from. It doesn’t belong to us, I know that,” he told MailOnline.
He claims he has looked after the land since it first became empty in 2013.
“We have been like the custodians even though we didn’t own the land,” he said.
“But because it is empty at the moment it’s a known spot for fly tipping.
Mr Hamilton – who bought the land for £220,000 and plans to build a house on it – claimed six skip-loads full of rubbish was thrown onto his land.
He went to the property on Friday and together with a group of friends and builders tossed the items over the wall onto his neighbour’s land.
Mr Hamilton said: “My reason for delivering the stuff back in the manner I did this because I have no faith in either environmental health or the police in resolving any of these matters even when there is evidence on the ground in the bags and a photograph of a vehicle on the site.
“I am reaching the end of my tether with people dumping rubbish everywhere because they are either too lazy or wish to save their money.”
Dramatic photos and video shows a confrontation between Mr Hamilton and his neighbours as he throws the rubbish over the fence.
A woman walked to the fence and said: “What are you doing?”
“We’re giving you back everything that you put over our wall,” Mr Hamilton said in response.
“You are an irresponsible next-door neighbour who’s getting it all back,” Mr Hamilton shouted, before his neighbour called the cops.
Mr Hamilton said he wanted to contact his neighbours again.
“I intend to speak to my neighbour via my lawyers and offer him the opportunity to clear the rubbish. During the argument one of the gentleman declared he had the owner’s permission to dump the rubbish on the land.
“The law of this country needs reviewing with regard to dumping of materials on anybody’s land illegally.
“I would like to thank the police for their actions on the day and can only apologise for the behaviour of my neighbours towards the police officers who were entirely professional.”

“Last month someone turned up in a white van, broke the locks to the front gate and dumped a load of rubbish. We called the police and reported it.”
A Met Police spokesman said they were called to the dispute between the neighbours.
“Officers attended and established it was a civil matter. No arrests were made,” the spokesman said.
