A FLY-TIPPER and business responsible for dumping a kitchen on the roadside in Well near Alford, have been fined a total of £6,000 by magistrates.

East Lindsey District Council took action against Andrew Marshall and Marshalls Removals and Clearance Limited, which he owns, following a tip off from a witness who spotted the waste being dumped on July 10, 2011.

Appearing before a Skegness Magistrate last week, Marshall of Fuller Street, Cleethorpes, pleaded not guilty but was convicted, fined £1,000 and ordered to pay £1,500 costs.

Marshall's Removals and Clearance Limited of Fuller Street, Cleethorpe was also fined £2,000 and told to pay £1,575.42 costs for the offence.

Portfolio holder for street scene at ELDC, Councillor Steve Newton, said: "Flytipping is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in East Lindsey. We will take action against anyone caught fly-tipping and the outcome of this case sends a strong message to those who do flytip that if caught it'll be costly."

To report a fly tip please call 0800 195 5228 or email flytipping@e-lindsey.gov.uk

    WEll done to the witness who spotted this company dumping this rubbish spoiling our countryside. The company should have been made to pay a reward to the person who reported them.....

    Well done ELDC. Prosecute these flytippers everytime! This bloke had clearly not heard of an area of outstanding natural beauty but then he came all the way from Cleethorpes. That says it all! One additional point though. Closing the recycling centres for longer periods cannot help the cause.
