A 19-year-old man has been handed with a £330 bill for dumping rubbish after council officers traced rubbish to his address.

Joseph Ogundele, of Broadhurst Drive, Goodmayes, pleaded guilty to fly-tipping at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court last month.

The court heard how council officers discovered a pile of fly tipped rubbish in nearby Longbridge Road which included letters and a bank card which led back to Ogundele’s address.

A mattress and parts of the garage roof were also part of the tip, which was suspected as being asbestos.

He admitted to tipping the items because hiring a van or skip was too expensive.

Ogundele was fined £110 and told to pay £20 victim surcharge and £200 towards council costs.
