A man who fly-tipped a bed and three bags of rubbish has been fined.
Great Yarmouth Borough Council successfully prosecuted Walter Serra, aged 38, of Elsie Road, Cobholm after he dumped the waste in a passageway behind his home in Cobholm last September.
Serra recently pleaded guilty at Great Yarmouth Magistrates' Court to fly-tipping. He was fined £50 and told to pay £150 costs plus a £30 victim surcharge.
Cllr Carl Smith, chairman of the environment committee, said: 'This case is a reminder to everyone about the importance of disposing of your waste properly. Dumping waste is completely illegal and unjustifiable, and there are many facilities to enable the responsible disposal of waste.'
The borough council lists one of its priorities as supporting people who enhance the borough, and challenging people and their behaviour when they disrupt others' quality of life.
