A flytipping builder who dumped waste including a bath, a door and other debris on a country lane was fined £1,130 by investigators – after paperwork was found among the rubble.

Council staff sifted through the waste in an area of outstanding natural beauty in Shoreham, near Sevenoaks, and uncovered documents that led them back to a bathroom refurbishment where David Sanderson, 33, was a sub-contractor.

He claimed he paid a ‘man in a transit-style tipper van’ £180 to take the waste, which completely blocked the lane, but told officers he did not check the driver was licensed to dispose of it, nor did he obtain a waste transfer notice.

Sanderson was asked on several occasions to attend interviews with Sevenoaks District Council’s fly-tipping investigation team to discuss the incident, but he made various excuses.
