Children as young as seven are being recruited by councils to act as 'citizen snoopers', the Daily Mail can reveal.

The 'environment volunteers' will report on litter louts, noisy neighbours - and even families putting their rubbish out on the wrong day.

There are currently almost 9,000 people signed up to the schemes. More are likely to be recruited in the coming months.

Controversially, some councils are running 'junior' schemes which are recruiting children.

After basic training, volunteers are expected to be the 'eyes and the ears' of the town hall.

They are given information packs about how to collect evidence, including tips about writing down numberplates, which could later be used in criminal prosecutions.

Luton Borough Council's Street Seen scheme encourages its 650 volunteers to report 'environmental concerns'. It is also recruiting 'Junior Street Champions', aged between seven and 11.

Primary schools could also be involved within two years.

Similarly, Islington Council in north London has recruited 1,200 'Islington Eyes' to report crime hotspots, fly-tipping and excess noise from DIY.

Volunteers are given a list of things to do when confronted with fly-tippers, including taking photos 'without being seen'.

Last year the council undertook a recruitment drive for youngsters aged nine and above, called Junior Eyes.

Children are given special books to write down reports on littering or graffiti in their schools, which they then send to the council.

I don't like that idea at all
Sounds like it is becoming more and more like 1984

Also like the young nazis who sometimes even turned in their
parents for saying or doing the wrong thing

We know how cheeky some of these kids can be
What if you upset some and they go out to get you on some minor offence

I think this is a good thing more than a bad. If you aint break the law you aint nowt to worry about.
Also teaches kids good morals.
Can see negatives as well tho such as why should responsibility/ authority be given to snotty nosed kids. Loads more to write but i got texting cramp

I say we bribe the little buggers to spy on the council instead. In my experience, as a mam of two , children are mercenary laugh
