A Bury man was fined after pleading guilty to fly-tipping.

Tristran Worboys, 32, appeared at Peterborough Magistrates Court on January 13 and admitted fly-tipping in Woodwalton.

Magistrates heard that Mr Worboys, of Tunkers Lane, was spotted committing the offence on September 18 last year by a member of the public who made a note of his vehicle registration and passed it on to the council’s enforcement team.

As a result, Mr Worboys was interviewed, under caution, on September 24 when he admitted the offence.

Worboys told investigators that he had been turned away by the household waste recycling centre.

Worboys was fined £100, with a £20 victims’ surcharge

He was also ordered to pay a contribution of £125 towards the costs of investigation, £100 for the clean-up and £200 towards prosecution costs.

Councillor Robin Carter, executive councillor for operations and environment, said: “Fly-tipping is unsightly, has a detrimental impact on the environment and is very costly to remove. We would encourage anyone who has any information on fly-tipping to report it to the council.

“We take fly-tipping very seriously, and will, wherever possible, instigate legal action against anyone who participates in such activities.”
