The public is being asked to help identify a man as part of an investigation into the fly-tipping of a mattress in Weymouth.

The Dorset Council Waste Service has released pictures of a man they hope to identify after a double mattress was left up against a wall on Wesley Street.

The incident took place on Sunday, March 10 at 11.03pm. Dorset Council Waste Service has only now put out the appeal.

A spokesperson for the Dorset Council Waste Service said: "A male wearing a white hoodie and with a small white dog comes into view from Park Street. He appears to have come from the direction of King Street.

"He is dragging a double mattress which he then leaves against a wall in Wesley Street, at its junction with Park Street. Given the size of the object, we assume he lives locally."

Anyone with information is asked to please contact, or call 01305 224008.
