Prolific fly-tipper banned from setting foot in Newham

4 July 2018 in Community safety and Environment
A prolific fly tipper who dumped 20 tonnes of waste on a busy road in Newham has now been banned from  setting foot in the borough for three years.
His Honour Judge Huskinson handed down the sentence to Patrick Egan, 30, from Grange Road, Grays in Essex, at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Thursday 28 June.

It means that Egan is banned  from entering Newham except to travel through on public or private transport and without disembarking.

Egan is also prohibited from associating with James Atkins or Stuart Beattie in public or private within England and Wales.

The court order comes after Egan was sentenced to eight months in prison on 14 June after admitting three offences under the Environmental Protection Act.

Due to the magnitude of his offences; it was on a public road, it was blocking the highway and the entrance to local stables used by children and it cost thousands of pounds to clear up, the Metropolitan Police and Newham Council applied for a Criminal Behaviour Order.

The order is aimed at tackling the most serious and persistent offenders and an order can only be granted after conviction for a criminal offence in a criminal court.

Councillor Rachel Tripp, cabinet member for the environment, said: “We will use every tool at our disposal to stop people ruining this borough for our residents.
This man’s behaviour has blighted our borough and cost the council thousands of pounds to clear up. The judge has recognised the serious of his offences by banning him from our borough.”
