Two men have appeared before magistrates after fly-tipping on a Hull estate.

Michael and Scott Hadley, of Quillcourt, Orchard Park, admitted breaking the law by gathering rubbish from a house before disposing of it on their estate.

The pair received conditional discharges lasting a year after the hearing last week.

The prosecution, brought by the city council’s neighbourhood nuisance team, followed a fly-tipping complaint in Blythorpe last July.

Officers found evidence among the rubbish that led them to a home, where a householder admitted the Hadleys had removed the refuse from their property.

The pair were convicted under the 1990 Environmental Protection Act and told to pay costs of £307 as well as a victim surcharge of £15.

John Hewitt, a Hull city councillor responsible for neighbourhoods, said on Wednesday February 4 that neighbourhood nuisance officials had given the Hadleys “numerous” chances to cooperate.

He said the prosecution proves that the local authority will act against waste transporters and dumpers who do not get the legal licences to go about their business.
