A frustrated landowner has taken revenge on neighbors accused of throwing tons of rubbish on his land – by throwing it back over the garden wall.
Cliff Hamilton bought the overgrown property on Bath Road in Hounslow, west London nine months ago and had the property secured with high fences, padlocks and chains.
However, he recently received an anonymous letter warning that heaps of rubbish – including televisions, doors, and tires – had been dumped on his land.
Mr Hamilton accused his neighbor of being the culprit because "the garbage couldn't come from anywhere else".
"None of the overgrown lots was trampled," he said. "I have been sent photos of the neighbors in my garden entering the garbage."
On August 14th, he marched to the property with clients and hurled the abandoned household items over the wall – to the horror of his neighbors.
Frustrated landowner Cliff Hamilton tossed the trash with the flies in his neighbor's yard – after accusing them of throwing it in his yard. The property is located in Hounslow, West London
Doors, televisions and even tires have been dumped on the property, which is gated and locked with a padlock
Mr Hamilton said the rubbish could only land on his land if it was knocked over by the neighbors. They also received photos of the neighbors in the act
When they started throwing the trash, they were quickly challenged by their neighbors
The neighbors yelled at them and launched an explosive tirade before calling the police
But when the police arrived, they handcuffed the man's black shirt and led him away
The video shows Mr. Hamilton and friends of builders throwing the rubbish from their property into their neighbour's garden.
An angry woman in a white cardigan stomps in sight and yells, "What are you doing ?!"
"We're giving you back everything you put over our wall," replies Mr. Hamilton.
The woman is joined by a man who starts an explosive tirade against Mr. Hamilton and his friends as they continue to "return" the trash.
"You are an irresponsible neighbor who gets it all back!" Shouts Mr. Hamilton.
The angry neighbors called the police for assistance. But when the man started yelling at them, the officers led him away in handcuffs.
Mr. Hamilton said: “An anonymous person drew my attention to the fact that large amounts of rubbish had been deposited at the rear of the fully fenced property.

The neighbors held up their phones to record the rubbish being thrown over the wall
Mr Hamilton said the garbage couldn't have come from another property as none of the plants on the overgrown property had been trampled

A neighbor swung his cell phone and peered over the wall as pieces of wood flew over him
He started an explosive tirade with Mr. Hamilton and the builders

“My reason for returning this stuff like I did is because I don't believe in Environmental Health or the police when it comes to clearing up any of these issues, even with evidence on the floor and a photo in my pockets of a vehicle are the location.
“I've come to the end of my shackles because people throw garbage everywhere, because they're either too lazy or want to save their money.
“I intend to speak to my neighbor through my attorneys and give them the option to pay for the garbage collection before legal action is taken. During the dispute, one of the gentlemen said he had the owner's permission to dump the rubbish in the countryside.
"The law of this land needs to be reviewed to verify the illegal dumping of material on everyone's land.
"I would like to thank the police for their actions that day and can only apologize for the behavior of my neighbors towards the police, who were completely professional."

The brave action comes after a farmer plagued by a fly dump truck that threw 421 tires on his land got his own back by dropping them on the perpetrator's front door.
The rubbish had been dumped on Stuart Baldwin's farm in Wigan, but the crime was caught on video surveillance.
The 56-year-old rancher Stuart got so tired of it after 25 attacks that he decided to become a detective and tracked down the culprit at his nearby home. He had three days to clean up the mess.
When the deadline was up and no trash had been removed, Mr. Baldwin took the law into his own hands and used a family recycling truck to return the dumped tires.
The video published online shows how they are deposited with the alleged dump truck.
CCTV showed a man taking tires from his van and throwing them onto Stuart's land
