Kevin Scott, 54, of High Street, Hilgay, near Downham Market, pleaded guilty to one count of operating an illegal waste site at Fairfield Garage in Bridge Street, Hilgay, between January 7 and August 30, last year.

Rebecca Vanstone, prosecuting on behalf of the Environment Agency at Norwich Crown Court, said there would have to be a further hearing to decide the final basis of his plea,

Jason Stevens appeared for Scott, who said his plea was offered on a basis that the illegal operation was between January and August.

He said the site was now operated by a different company run by his wife which was now compliant.

He said: “There has been a visit and it is now compliant.”

Judge Shaw adjourned the case until January 25 next year for a trial of issue to decide the basis of plea before sentence.
