​​A 32-year old man has been ordered to pay £1,800 after admitting fly-tipping building material and scrap metal in Newham.
Adrian Iolea, of Shakespeare Crescent, E12 appeared before Thames Magistrates on Thursday 29 June, where he admitted the charge.

The magistrates heard that the rubbish was dumped in Millais Avenue, Manor Park in April.

Officers from the Newham Fly-Tip Task Force investigated and discovered evidence amongst the waste that led to a local business.

The business owners told officers they believed they had paid for the rubbish to be lawfully disposed of, and further investigation of CCTV recordings uncovered a van and its registration number, which led to Iolea.

Iolea was fined £1,000, ordered to pay £700 costs, plus a victim surcharge of £100. In addition his Ford Transit van was seized and will be disposed of by Newham Council.

Councillor Forhad Hussain, Newham Council Cabinet Member for Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour said: “This is another good result for our enforcement team, and I put any would be fly-tippers on notice, if you seek to make profit by dumping your waste on our streets, we will track you down and bring you before the courts.”
