​​A father-of-two has been found guilty of deliberately dumping a truck load of garbage while driving his vehicle down a city street.

Daniel Ashworth was caught committing his dirty drive-by crime on the incredible attached CCTV footage filmed on Keswick Road in Blackpool.

The 22-year-old can be seen shifting the hydraulics of his Ford Transit truck to allow the mounds of rubbish flow on to the road behind him while he continued to drive at 30mph.

Owner of two waste management firms, Ashworth had already been handed a lifetime ban from collecting waste for previous similar offences.

Old toilets, human faeces, full black bags, mattresses and building rubble were among the items deposited on the street in the filthy incident.

Ashworth was order to pay £1,000 compensation towards the clean up operation that was required after he dumped the waste.

He was also handed a 39 week suspended sentence and told that he must complete 100 hours unpaid work.

A work colleague at the firms D and A Demolition and D and A Waste Management was also convicted and must do 80 hours unpaid work.
