Who’s In Court: Flytipping, dangerous animals and dog fouling
Two commercial businesses have been found guilty of flytipping in Sefton, with one caught on CCTV dumping rubbish.
Self employed builder Ryan Bunclarke, 27, of Litherland Road, Bootle, was caught on camera dumping rubbish into a skip.
He was originally turned away from a disposal centre because he did not have a licence to properly dispose of commercial waste.
Magistrates at South Sefton Magistrates Court handed him a fine of £530.
The owners of Rossi’s Ice Cream Parlour on Lord Street, Southport, were also in court after pleading guilty to flytipping cardboard boxes.
Despite Magistrates finding it to have been a low level offence, the couple were fined £340.
Elsewhere Gerrard Rice, 61, of Crank Road, Rainford was fined a total of £1025.69 after his out of control Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross-breed attacked and injured a Labrador in the borough earlier this year.
An order was also made that his dog must now be muzzled in a public place.
Magistrates also saw fit to fine Wallasey resident Melissa Lunt, 24, of Walsingham Court after she failed twice to clean up after her Staffordshire Bull Terrier which had fouled the pavement of Longfellow Street, Bootle.
She was fined £584.
Other cases heard at South Sefton Magistrates included:
Stuart McDougall, of Mount Street, Waterloo was fined a total of £297 for littering.
