A man from Lewisham has been fined more than £3,000 for fly tipping in Slough.

Luis Ernesto Castedo-Leigue admitted to dumping a bed frame, mattress, cardboard, plastic and other refuse at Buckingham Row in Slough on January 27, 2022.

He appeared at Buckinghamshire Magistrates Court on July 20.

The 26-year-old admitted to failing to comply with a duty of care regarding controlled waste as he did not take measures to ensure that the transport of the rubbish was to an authorised person.

He was fined £1,230, along with £1,320 in compensation, a victim surcharge of £123 and costs of £450.

Castedo-Leigue of Jerrard Street in Lewisham must pay £131 per month from August 17 until the full £3,123 is paid.

He also admitted to unlawfully depositing general refurbishment waste without an environmental permit.

No separate penalty was given for this offence.
