A Slough man has been slapped with a £1,400 fine after fly-tipping near Langley earlier this year.

Naser Sahiti, 51, of Ryvers Road, was caught on CCTV dumping a roll of carpet in Trenches Lane on March 16.

His car was traced back to him and, when interviewed at Slough Police Station, he admitted to dumping the waste.

He told Bucks County Council investigators that he intended to come back the next day and collect the waste, but when he did return, he could not find the carpet.

High Wycombe magistrates fined Sahiti £1,041 and ordered him to pay clean-up and prosecution costs of £335. A victim surcharge of £104 was also levied, making a total to pay of £1,480.

South Bucks District Council cabinet member for environment Luisa Sullivan, speaking on behalf of the Waste Partnership for Buckinghamshire, said: “Once again, our anti-fly tipping cameras provided the evidence that led to a successful conviction, even though in this case the person may have thought that the surveillance warning sign was just for show.”
