Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A MAN has been fined af­ter fly tipped rub­bish in a coun­try road near Bea­cons­field was traced back to him.

El­gan Lloyd-Davies, 36, of Lit­tle­worth Com­mon, ap­peared at Wy­combe Mag­is­trates Court on Wed­nes­day, March 16 and pleaded guilty to two of­fences of fail­ing in his duty of care re­gard­ing waste, which was found dumped il­le­gally.

The court heard that on Novem­ber 10 last year, in­ves­ti­ga­tors from the Waste Partnership for Bucks ex­am­ined dumped waste, which they found in pass­ing at the road­side in Hedger­ley Lane, near Bea­cons­field.

The waste was pho­tographed and ex­am­ined for ev­i­dence of ori­gin. De­tails found within the dumped waste led the in­ves­ti­ga­tors to speak to Mr Lloyd-Davies.

When in­ter­viewed at a police sta­tion, he de­nied dump­ing the waste him­self and said that he had gen­er­ated it him­self as part of his build­ing work.

He said that he had taken it back to his own home where he had un­loaded it from his works van and had paid a pass­ing ‘man with a van’ to re­move the waste and dis­pose of it, but had not made any checks on the man and was un­able to iden­tify him.

The mag­is­trates fined Mr Lloyd-Davies and his com­pany £3,990 and or­dered clean up and pros­e­cu­tion costs of £984 to be paid, as well as a vic­tim sur­charge of £57, mak­ing the to­tal to pay £5,031.

The case was pros­e­cuted by Bucks County Coun­cil work­ing on be­half of the Waste Partnership for Bucks.
