Man fined £2,000 for dumping 30ft static house full of rubbish
A man has been ordered to pay £2,000 for dumping a 30ft static house full of rubbish. Footage shows the ramshackle static house abandoned next to bushes, with trash cans and bags partially blocking its windows.
Patrick Doran, 23, illegally left the white caravan stuffed with rubbish near Wymondham in rural Norfolk. Inside, the trailer looks dirty with piles of rubbish dumped on the floor and kitchen surfaces.
Doran, from Wymondham, was found guilty of dumping litter without an environmental permit after the fly dumping incident in July 2021. On May 20 he was ordered to pay a £500 fine including costs of £1,500 at South Norfolk Council and a victim surcharge of £50 at Great Yarmouth Magistrates Court.
Councilor Graham Minshull, of South Norfolk Council, said: ‘Tipping costs taxpayers thousands of pounds every year to clean up and will not be tolerated in South Norfolk. It’s not just those who tip who risk being fined.
“Owners have a responsibility to ask anyone offering to clean up their rubbish where they are going to take it and to ensure that they are a licensed waste handler. Any rubbish found dumped that relates to you, could result in you being given a If you are caught fly tipping, the council can not only fine you, but also take you to court and prosecute you, which can result in a prison sentence.
