Driver fined for fly tipping

A DELIVERY driver has been fined £200 for fly tipping on the Cossall Industrial Estate.

David Pennington, of Twickenham, London, pleaded guilty to dumping cardboard packaging by the roadside on July 28 last year.

The incident was witnessed and reported to Broxtowe Borough Council by a member of the public and was also captured on CCTV.

Nottingham Magistrates Court heard on Wednesday January 18 that self-employed Pennington was ashamed and regretted what he had done.

Magistrates took into account his early guilty plea and, together with a £15 victim surcharge, fined him £200.

Broxtowe Borough Council was also awarded £178.72 towards its legal and clean-up costs.
