A council has issued a £445 Fixed Penalty Notice to a local landlord who disposed of his renovation waste in a residential car park.
However, it appears no one actually witnessed the offence.
Breckland council in Norfolk received a report from a member of the public that several mattresses, remains of flat-pack furniture and a camping chair had been fly tipped at a car park in Thetford.
While there was no immediate evidence or witnesses, the council's officers conducted door-to-door visits at surrounding properties and followed drag marks which appeared to be coming from a nearby address which was undergoing renovation.
The council officers contacted the landlord and conducted a telephone interview under caution.
This led to the individual admitting the offence and he was issued a Fixed Penalty Notice for £445 for this fly-tip incident.
A spokesman for the council says: "Thanks to the cooperation from local residents we've been able to track down the perpetrator of this fly-tipping incident and issue a fine. Fly-tipping is unacceptable.”
