The owner of a home in Hull has been ordered to pay for the clean-up of his overgrown, rubbish-filled garden.

Fernando Carbello, of London, was prosecuted by Hull City Council for allowing the garden on Hardane, Orchard Park, to get into an unacceptable state.

Mr Carbello failed to attend the hearing at Hull Magistrates’ Court but in his absence he was ordered to pay £295.82 to fund the cost of the clear-up as well as £250 in prosecution costs.

He was prosecuted by the council under the Town & Country Planning Act 1990.

Magistrates heard that officials from the council’s Neighbourhood Nuisance Team carried out an inspection of the property after the issue was brought to their attention.

Repeated attempts were made to contact the property owner, the court heard, but the state of the garden had not improved and Mr Carbello was served with a legal notice that was not complied with, prompting the prosecution.
