Two men have pleaded guilty to separate charges involving the illegal disposal of waste, in prosecutions at Norwich Magistrates' Court brought by North Norfolk District Council (NNDC).

Jason Harniman, who lives in Dunton, near Fakenham, gave his waste to an unknown man in a van who turned up offering to take his scrap and other waste at no cost. It was tipped on Tatterford Road, Dunton.

Harniman was given a conditional discharge for six months and ordered to pay £70.80 compensation, £150 costs and a victim surcharge of £20; a total of £240.80

Joseph Burden, who lives in Plumstead, near Holt, pleaded guilty to two charges relating to waste deposited in Marlpit Lane, Hempstead. Burden had accepted an offer from someone to take the waste for £20.

The court sentenced him to a six-month conditional discharge and imposed a £20 victim surcharge.
