A council took just three hours to locate, interview and fine a man seen flytipping in a Norfolk village.

The incident took place at Beetley Village Hall, prompting Breckland District Council’s enforcement officers to review CCTV evidence to locate the driver of a vehicle seen fly tipping wooden pallets.

When questioned, the driver admitted the incident and immediately paid the fixed penalty notice of £300.

From the launch of the investigation to the payment of the fine, the case took just three hours to resolve.

Money from the Fixed Penalty Notice will go towards investigating fly tipping.
