The council describes the move as the “latest offensive in the battle against the most complained about environment crimes” and said they may even use anti-terror laws under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act that provides surveillance powers to prevent crime.

The wardens, who are able to decide whether they want to wear a uniform or go undercover, will travel to any location in the county to clamp down on offenders in a bid to reassure the public that problems are being attended to quickly.
