A flytipper seen on camera in east London dumping a large pile of cardboard on a pavement in Whitechapel has been fined nearly £500.
The dumping was caught on CCTV by Tower Hamlets council staff at their monitoring centre on the Isle of Dogs.
Jagsev Singh was recorded throwing the cardboard from his lorry onto the pavement in Myrdle Street, off the A13 Commercial Road, blocking the pedestrian path.
Singh, 29, from Norwood in south London, pleaded guilty at Thames Magistrates Court and was ordered to pay £495 including clearance costs.
“This prosecution shows we’ll take action against this behaviour,” council cabinet member Rachel Blake said after the case. “The cost of clearing up the illegally-dumped waste is diverting money from public services.”
