It was reduced to £200 as it was paid within ten days.

The council has warned people it will not tolerate any flytipping and patrols will take place to monitor the area.

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

"Kettering Council takes flytipping offences very seriously and will prosecute offenders where possible.

"I would urge anyone who spots flytippers to report it to the council on 01536 410333 or online at www.kettering.gov.uk/flytipping."
