This was in relation to an incident that happened on April 27 this year, when Kamran was caught dumping his waste in Wexham Park Lane by an enforcement officer from Buckinghamshire Council.

When examined, the waste led the officer to a householder who had recently had his bathroom renovated.

The householder revealed that Kamran had collected the waste which was later found dumped.

When interviewed under caution at Hayes Police Station, Kamran admitted dumping the waste, claiming that he intended to go back and get it.

He was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge, making a total to pay of £2,265.57.

Gareth Williams, Buckinghamshire Council’s Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Environment said: “We proactively target those who choose to commit environmentally damaging offences such as this.

"The council provide excellent waste facilities, there really is no excuse for fly-tipping.

"Ignorance really wasn't bliss here."
