Massive drop in abandoned car numbers

There has been a 72% fall in the number of vehicles being abandoned and dumped across England.

In 2003 councils had to clear up an average of 800 abandoned vehicles each day but last year this fell to just 225.

Council leaders say that a combination of tough enforcement by local authorities cracking down on abandoned cars, new rules deterring would-be car dumpers and high scrap metal prices have all led to the massive drop.
