At Northampton Magistrates’ Court, Lilian pleaded guilty to failure to control his waste.

He was fined £1,000 and ordered to pay costs of £813.34 and a victim surcharge of £50.

The total of £1,863.34 is subject to a 28-day collection order.

Shirley Plenderleith, head of public services at Kettering Council, said: “Fly-tipping not only blights neighbourhoods but costs time and money to remove it – resources that would be better spent elsewhere.

“Kettering Council takes fly-tipping offences very seriously and will prosecute offenders where possible.

“I would urge anyone who spots fly-tippers to report it to the council on 01536 410333 or online at www.kettering.gov.uk/flytipping.”
