A fly-tipper from East Ham has been fined £350 for his part in dumping waste in Essex that stretched out for a mile.
Abdul Mumin, of Sheridan Road, admitted the charge at Basildon Magistrates’ Court on Friday, June 12.
The 24-year-old was also told to pay £250 in compensation to the council, £560 in prosecution costs and a £35 victim surcharge.
He was among five people to admit their part in dumping waste at Cory’s Wharf, Purfleet, in November 2014.

Cllr Terry Brookes, Thurrock Council’s portfolio holder for public protection, said: “This sends out a clear message to everyone who thinks they’ve found a short cut to getting rid of their rubbish. Don’t do it.
“When we find evidence in fly-tipping we will follow it through and those we prosecute will find themselves with a record.”
