Breckland: Fly Tipper Fined Thousands
A Swaffham man has been fined thousands of pounds after pleading guilty to fly-tipping.
47 year old Gordon McPhee from The Splashes, Swaffham appeared at King's Lynn Magistrates Court on 3 May and pleaded guilty to illegally depositing waste (fly tipping).
He was ordered to pay a total of £4,566.00. Mr McPhee dumped the rubbish on Monday 3rd April on Forestry Commission land in Howards Field, opposite the Desert Rats Memorial.
During a two week investigation, headed by Breckland Council working in partnership with the Operation Radar team from Norfolk Police, Mr McPhee was tracked down through documents left in the debris. The documents led Council Officers to a recently vacated address in Weeting where contractors were refurbishing the property in readiness for a new tenant.
The contractors explained they had paid £400 to Mr McPhee who had approached them offering to dispose of the debris left in the house by the previous tenant. Lynda Turner, Breckland Council Executive Member for Localism, Community an Environmental Services said: "Tracking down a flytipping offender can be a long and difficult process so it is great news that this man has been brought to justice. Flytipping is a particularly anti-social offence, which endangers wildlife and spoils enjoyment of the countryside for others".
An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering Leonne Weeks, 16, who was found dead on a path in Rotherham.
Three possible routes for a new road north of Ipswich have been announced by Suffolk County Council.
A man has died following a cliff collapse in Thorpeness in Suffolk.
