Faisal Dhalech, who owns Brading Convenience Store, in Brading Crescent, found himself out of pocket after Redbridge enforcement officers prosecuted him for failing to produce the correct paperwork to show he was disposing of commercial waste legally.

He was hit with a fine of £200 and ordered to pay costs of £300. A victim surcharge of £30 was also imposed.

Redbridge Council said it is taking a tough stance on grime crime and will fine or prosecute any individual or business that it finds breaking the law.

Cabinet member for civic pride, Councillor John Howard, said: "All of us, including businesses, have a responsibility to the environment and each other to get rid of rubbish properly, and keep our streets clean.

"Commercial waste must be disposed of safely and legally to prevent contamination and the spread of vermin.

"Any business unable to show how their commercial waste is being disposed of in a safe and legal manner will end up in court and out of pocket just like this case."
