    A Wirral man has been fined £400 for flytipping waste in Sefton.

    Francis Berry (59), of Cromer Drive, Wallasey pleaded guilty to dumping waste at Crosby Marina at a hearing at South Sefton Magistrates Court on April 18.

    This followed an incident where rubbish was left at Crosby Coastal Park contrary to Section 33(1)(a) of the Environmental Protection Act, 1990.

    A spokesman for Sefton Council said: “Continuous successful prosecutions like this show we will not take flytipping lightly.

    “Sadly many people still believe that they can dispose of rubbish wherever they want causing issues for residents and draining Council services.

    “Hopefully this case will act as a deterrent to other potential offenders and make them think twice before just dumping waste wherever they want to.”

    It is estimated during the 2015/16 financial year, Sefton Council spent almost £400K in relation to the clearance, disposal and enforcement of flytipping offences.

    If any residents have any concerns regarding flytipping or wish to report an offence, they should contact Sefton Council on 0345 140 0845 or report it via the website sefton.gov.uk

    The Council should have impounded the caravans of the 'travellers' until they cleaned up their mess!

    Cracking idea - given that the Council cannot act 'ultra vires' - what legislation would you suggest they act under?

    This bloke should appeal on the grounds that Sefton do nothing whatsoever about the filth left by the gypo's.
