A handful of North Herts District Council’s environmental officers will star in a Channel 5 documentary next week.
The new behind-the-scenes series, aptly named 'Grime and Punishment', features council officers from across the UK who clean up after others in their communities.
In episode four airing on Thursday, July 4, Suzanne Lane - NHDC's senior environmental officer - will be seen carrying out a food inspection at a fish and chip shop in the district, ensuring the business is following suitable food safety practice.
In episode six airing on July 18, NHDC's environmental crime officers David Furr and Jane Bethell-Lombari investigate rural fly-tippers. The programme follows David and Jane's investigation and sees them find crucial evidence which will help them prosecute offenders.
