Lincoln fly-tipper named and fined over £900

A Lincoln man has been fined over £900 after admitting a charge of fly tipping in a local village.

Waste, including several rubbish bags, appliances and bikes, was found dumped in a remote area on the edge of Martin village.

Colin Kelly of Alness Close, Lincoln was fined £400 and ordered to pay £500 towards costs. There was also a victim surcharge of £40.

City magistrates ordered him to pay at a rate of £20 a month after a prosecution was brought by North Kesteven District Council.

The court was told that an examination of the waste identified a business. This led to Kelly being tracked down as the offender.

Councillor Mervyn Head, Executive Member for the Environment at NKDC, said: “It’s difficult to think of something more anti-social than just dumping waste so that someone else will have to come and clear it up.

“North Kesteven District Council will always take a tough stance on fly-tipping so our message is clear – if you have waste you want to get rid of ask us for advice and we will be happy to help.”
