The Environment Agency (EA) are helping in a police investigation after a massive amount of waste was found dumped at a site in Egham recently.

Photos posted by EA on Twitter showed the site on Thorpe Lea Road covered in a deep layer of waste including building materials and household items.

The EA said they were now working on a criminal investigation with Surrey Police to help catch those responsible.

It is believed the illegal dumping happened between June 10-17.

In a statement posted online Monday (June 22), an EA spokesperson said:

"With @SurreyPolice, we’re part of the Joint Unit for Waste Crime investigating waste dumped illegally at Thorpe Lea Road, #Egham Downwards arrow
