A man who joked that he was “recycling” while he filmed himself tipping an old fridge off a cliff to tumble down into the ravine below, won’t be laughing now.

Seprona, the environmental crime unit of the Guardia Civil tracked him down by tracing the vehicle registration clearly visible in the video that he posted on social media.

It was registered to a company in Almeria that does house clearance and the worker was promptly sacked.

What’s more, he was ordered to pay a fine of €45,000 and then told to return to the scene, recover the fridge and dispose of it properly.

Officers posted a video of the man struggling to haul the fridge back up the steep slope to the roadside.
