A man who "forgot to put his bins out" has been fined £600, after he dumped his household waste at a beauty spot.  

The Thetford resident who fly tipped twice in the same area has been fined and warned a further incident could result in a court appearance. 

As part of an investigation by Breckland Council, the fly tipper said he had forgotten to put out his household bins and decided to dump it at woodland on the Kilverstone Estate in Thetford. 

The council’s enforcement team tracked down the culprit, who later admitted to not only dumping the household waste but also to later returning to fly tip laminate flooring from DIY renovations.
