Andover Advertiser: A man has caught fly tipping in AndoverA check of the registration led officers to Leigh Jenkinson, 36, of Junction Road.

During the investigation, camera footage on July 8, 2023 showed the vehicle arriving at the same location again and leaving more garden waste in the layby.

After admitting to the offences, Jenkinson appeared at Basingstoke Magistrates Court on 27 February 2024 and was handed a fine of £400 and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £160 and costs of £500.

Portfolio holder for environmental services, Councillor David Drew, said: “There really is no excuse for incidents like this and they can be so easily avoidable. To fly-tip your waste on more than one occasion is irresponsible and causes extra, unnecessary work for our already hard-working teams.

"A conviction for fly-tipping will also give you a criminal record, which could lead to you being unable to enter certain countries.

“You can dispose of your garden waste easily by taking it to one of Hampshire’s Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRC) or by subscribing to TVBC's Garden Waste Collection Service.”
