Langley Mill fly-tipper arrested and fined

A Langley Mill man who failed to turn up at court to answer fly-tipping charges, brought by Amber Valley Borough Council, has been arrested and ordered to pay fines and costs of more than £900.

Christian Bridges of Bailey Brook Drive, was arrested on 18 October and appeared in court on the same day. His original hearing was in May 2015, and the warrant for his arrest was issued when he did not attend.

The fly-tipping incident took place on Anchor Road in Langley Mill, leading to the charge that Bridges neglected his Duty of Care contrary to Section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990. The legislation requires that the owner of any waste is disposed of correctly, which Bridges failed to do.

He pleaded guilty and was fined £215, and ordered to pay court costs of £400, clear-up costs of £268.75, and a Victim Surcharge of £22, in total £908.75.
