A fly-tipper from East Ham who illegally dumped waste he was paid to get rid off legitimately has been fined and had his van seized.
Adrian Iolea, of Shakespeare Crescent, charged a business owner a fee by pretending he was a bonafide waste removal company but instead he dumped it in Millais Avenue, Manor Park in April.
Investigators from Newham Council tracked down the business through evidence in the waste and discovered they had paid for their rubbish to been disposed of legally.
Iolea was traced as his van and its registration number was caught on CCTV at the scene.
The 32-year-old was fined £1,000, ordered to pay £700 costs and a victim surcharge of £100.
