North Norfolk District Council has successfully brought another prosecution for fly-tipping as it continues to crack down on this form of anti-social behaviour.
John Jonas, 45, of East Runton, near Cromer, pleaded guilty at Norwich Magistrates Court last week to illegally dumping waste, including clothes, toys, cardboard and paper, in a field along Hall Road, Cromer, in April last year.
He was fined £600 and ordered to pay more than £1,000 towards prosecution costs.
Cllr Annie Claussen-Reynolds, North Norfolk District Council Portfolio Holder for Waste and Environmental Services, said: “This demonstrates once again that we are serious about tackling this issue, which is a blight on our communities.
“Whenever we have sufficient evidence to take these matters to court, we will prosecute. There is never an excuse to fly-tip, and we are determined to stamp it out.”
