Bulwell man who dumped mattress and USB cable in Carlton fined
A BULWELL man received a one-month driving ban after dumping a mattress and USB cable behind a garage in Carlton.
Andrew Hatton, 46, used a hire van to drive the rubbish to the site in St Austin's Court, but was spotted by a member of the public who took down the registration number and reported it to the council.
He was convicted of a fly-tipping offence and received the ban at Nottingham Magistrates Court on November 14, where he was also ordered to pay a £300 fine and £250 costs.
Councillor Michael Payne, deputy leader of the Gedling Borough Council, said: "The council takes fly-tipping very seriously. Mr Hatton was given every opportunity to sort out the matter with the council but failed to cooperate.
