A 21-year-old man was fined by magistrates after admitting dumping bags of rubbish in Holme Fen.

Andrew Ayling was interviewed by Huntingdonshire District Council’s enforcement officer in February after a number of black bags and cardboard were fly-tipped in Holme Fen.

Ayling attended the interview under caution where he admitted the offence.

Appearing at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court on August 10, Ayling, of The Maples, in Peterborough, was fined £150. He was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £20 and court costs of £300.

Councillor Robin Carter, executive councillor for environment, street scene and operations said: “The council receives a large number of reports of fly-tipping from its residents. This case demonstrates the importance of incidents being reported to the council so that investigations, clean-up and enforcement activities can be undertaken. “The council will continue to take a firm stance to the continued blight on our environment that the illegal disposal of waste creates.”
