1:10pm Tuesday 24th April 2012 in News
A SELF-EMPLOYED builder has been handed a £3,000 fine for fly-tipping.
Marcus Shirley, 44, of Bryony Gardens in Carterton, dumped building waste and bathroom fittings in White Hill Quarry, near Burford, in September 2011.
West Oxfordshire District Council environmental enforcement officers traced the rubbish to an address in Richmond-on-Thames, where Shirley was working.
Shirley admitted fly- tipping, carrying waste without authority and failure to produce waste transfer notes.
Banbury magistrates fined him £3,000, with £871 costs and a £15 victim’s surcharge, on Friday.
