North Devon Council officers star in Channel 5 documentary
Posted on: 19 July 2019
Two members of staff from North Devon Council are set to star in a behind-the-scenes documentary, ‘Grime and Punishment’, which is currently airing on Channel 5. The series features council officers from across the country who are involved in investigating environmental crime and cleaning up after others.
Alan Kyle and Ray Jones, North Devon Council’s Environmental and Dog Wardens, feature in an episode on 25 July on Channel 5 at 8pm. Alan is seen dealing with two abandoned vehicles which are later crushed and Ray issues a fine for a dog fouling incident.
Head of Environmental Health and Housing at North Devon Council, Jeremy Mann says: “We are really excited to have been involved in this documentary. Dealing with flytipping, littering, dog fouling and abandoned vehicles is not glamorous, but it is important work and the team are very passionate about making a positive difference in the community. We look forward to showing everyone the work we do on behalf of the residents of North Devon.”
Leader of North Devon Council, Councillor David Worden says: “I’m very pleased that the public will get the chance to see the hard work and dedication that goes into making North Devon a clean, beautiful and pleasant place to live. We are proud of the efforts of our Environmental Protection team and believe that our residents will gain a greater understanding of our work through this interesting documentary.”
