Nosy neighbours are being offered rewards of up to £500 of taxpayers’ money to spy on other residents, it emerged today.
They will be given cash for reporting offenders who let their dogs foul pavements, drop litter, dawb graffiti or fly-tip.
The amount offered is staggered, according to how far the prosecution is taken.
If a court summons is issued the snooper gets £100. On a conviction he gets £150 and if the offender gets a maximum sentence he receives £500.
The scheme, launched by Waltham Forest Council in North London, could be copied by local authorities across the country.
The Conviction Reward Scheme has been introduced after calls for more to be done to tackle ‘environmental crime’.
