Illegal dumpers were busted by a vigilant civilian who recorded the incident on his dash cam on Saturday.

The Kings Park man was driving along Peter Brock Drive, Eastern Creek about 11.05am, when he noticed a plume of dust ahead.

When he got closer, it’s alleged he saw a tip truck with its hoist up driving away from a pile of building waste dumped on the side of the road.

The man called police to pass on his recording.

Blacktown police and the Environmental Protection Authority have reviewed the footage.

The company has been identified and investigations continue. 

ASSAULT IN CINEMA

Saturday night at the movies in Blacktown turned violent when two men clashed during and after the film.

A Waterloo man, 28, was inside the cinema about 6.40pm when another man told him to be quiet.

The pair exchanged some heated words before returning their attention to the film.

At the end of the movie, the second man grabbed the Waterloo man by the throat and demanded he apologise.

He allegedly shook the man back and forth while witnesses looked on.

Bystanders intervened and the second man left the scene.

He is described as being Caucasian, mid-30s with dark hair, a ginger beard and was wearing a black shirt with a skull on the front.

Police will review CCTV footage of the incident.

Anyone with information should contact Blacktown police, 9671 9199, or Crime Stoppers, 1800 333 000.
