Bags of rubble were dumped next to a block of garages

A 52-year-old man from Thamesmead has been ordered to pay compensation and costs after dumping rubble at a block of garages in Erith.

Gary Kevin Stevens, a builder, was the owner of a van spotted dumping bags of rubble in Hurstwood Avenue.

The compensation is to be paid to Orbit Housing, who met the cost of clearing up the dumped material, and costs to the London Borough of Bexley which brought the case.

Stevens pleaded guilty to fly tipping at Bexley Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

Cabinet member in Bexley Peter Craske said: “I hope this case sends a lesson to all those whose fly tipping blights our surroundings and imposes cost which other law-abiding residents have to meet.”

“I would also like to thank the officers involved in the case, because the successful outcome is thanks to their hard work and determination.”
