A fly-tipper who was caught dumping waste in Beaconsfield has been fined more than £1,500.

Emil-Marius Boldijar, aged 43, dumped several bags of building renovation waste in Green Common Lane on June 25.

Boldijar, of Brentwood Place in north London, was on his way home from Maidenhead when he saw some waste on the side of the road and decided to add some of his own to the pile, dropping off between three and five bags full of rubbish.

Caught in the act by a passer-by, Boldijar fled the scene when he was confronted, but the member of the public was able to take down his licence plate and report him to the authorities.

Brought to Wycombe Magistrates' Court by Bucks Council on November 10, Boldijar admitted dumping the waste and was fined £1,508.

Peter Strachan, Bucks Council cabinet member for climate change and environment, said:

"I'd like to thank the witness in this case for coming forward and supporting the prosecution case. We rely on the public’s help to tackle this disgraceful and environmentally damaging offence.

"We investigate all incidences of fly-tipping in Buckinghamshire and offenders who are caught will be prosecuted."
