Man fined and labelled ‘fly-tipper’ for moving someone else’s rubbish from his land
A man has been fined £300 and branded a fly-tipper for moving furniture that was dumped on his property on to a public road.
The man, from Thetford, illegally moved the waste and left it in Pike Lane.
When spoken to by investigators he admitted moving the furniture but he could have avoided the fine by reporting the initial fly-tip to the council.
