Over the Christmas period we received an anonymous report about an illegal vehicle dismantler in the Halifax (Yorkshire) area.  We did follow this up & have identified a number of potentially illegal dismantlers, details of which we will be forwarding to our contacts at the Environment Agency.

Also during the Christmas-New Year break we completed our review of the 475 or so U16 registered exemptions.  The results were as expected - almost 200 potentially illegal operators were identified.  We have already sent a draft report to the Environment Agency & will shortly be following this up.

As part of this review we also looked at dismantlers in the Birmingham area and after 15 or so site visits identified a number that seemed to be operating outside the law.  A separate report has been submitted to the EA.

This year we will be focusing particularly on identifying illegal dismantlers & scrap yards, so watch out for some new pages on our websites & further e-bulletins.
