A man has been fined after pleading guilty to fly-tipping in the Chilterns AONB in May of last year.

31-year-old Beni Barariu was captured by anti fly-tipping surveillance cameras dumping a car seat, two tyres and an interior vehicle trum on Longdown Hill in Cadsden, Princes Risborough on the evening of May 5, 2020.

Mr Barariu was interviewed under caution by council investigators at Aylesbury Police Station last June, where he admitted dumping the waste - confirming that it had come from his own home.

He said he 'had the waste in the vehicle and had acted on the spur of the moment'.

Barariu, of Oak Green, Aylesbury, pleaded guilty to fly-tipping at High Wycombe Magistrates’ Court on December 9

The magistrates fined Mr Barariu £615. He was ordered to pay clean-up, investigation and legal costs of £1,200 and a victim surcharge of £62 - making a total for him to pay of £1,877.

Bill Chapple OBE, Buckinghamshire Council's Cabinet Member for Environment and Climate Change said : "The fact that Longdown Hill is within the Chilterns AONB and part of the natural heritage of Bucks much prized by locals and visitors alike doesn't seem to have been a deterrent to this offender.

"But regardless of where Illegal dumping takes place, Buckinghamshire Council's zero tolerance approach means that we'll take enforcement action against offenders whenever and wherever we can obtain evidence against them.

"In this case, our surveillance cameras once again proved their worth, and provided evidence of the offender dumping car parts from his vehicle onto the verge. Waste such as this can be taken to your local household recycling centre for a modest charge – surely preferable to court fines, costs, and a criminal record."
