Police cracking down on illegal metal dealers have promised they will continue to inspect scrapyards to ensure they are working within new laws.

Updated legislation which came into force in December means all scrap metal dealers must hold a license issued by their local council in order to trade.

Herts Police spent a day visiting four dealer sites in the county under Operation Chattel to check they were complying with the rules, which could lead to prosecution and a fine of up to £5,000 or a closure order if breached.
