Hertsmere Borough Council has successfully brought a prosecution against two fly tippers who were filmed on CCTV dumping large amounts of waste. Richard Hanstock was instructed by the Council.

The case is a good example of a local authority working closely with the police to use their powers to bring environmental offenders to justice, and demonstrates the seriousness with which the courts take these offences, in line with the new environmental offences sentencing guideline.

The case has been reported on by the Daily Mail.
