A fly-tipper has been handed 120 hours of community service for dumping building waste in Beckton.
Paul Maughan, 27, of Thornhill Road, Leyton, was also ordered to pay £819.32 plus an £85 victim surcharge when he appeared at Thames Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, July 6. He had previously admitted fly-tipping.
Maughan was spotted by residents who saw him break into gated land in Atlantis Way on May 30.
He was seen dumping building waste from the back of a transit van, and Newham Council’s fly-tip task force were able to arrest him at the scene.
Councillor Forhad Hussain, cabinet member for crime and anti-social behaviour, said: “This is a great result for the council, and we particularly welcome the high level of fine, which reflects the seriousness of the offence, and the cost to the council of clearing up the mess left by fly-tip criminals.
