"A businessman has been prosecuted, after flytipped rubbish was traced back to his company.

"Thomas Murrell, 44, of South Drive, Coulsdon, [OK, it's miles away] was fined £3,000, after pleading guilty to not preventing a flytipping incident.

"He was also ordered to pay compensation of £5,000 to the victim, as a contribution to the clear up costs.

Senior Environmental Crime Officer Steve O'Hara said:
"This case shows that we will use all methods at our disposal to track down and deal with flytippers.

Flytipping causes huge problems for local businesses and tax payers, it is expensive to remove, and can blight beauty spots."
