Fly-tipper fined and prosecuted

A Ramsgate woman has been successfully prosecuted for fly-tipping by Thanet District Council.
Miss Ulrika Holmsten-Reynolds from Truro Road was convicted and fined at Canterbury Magistrates’ Court on 6 January 2013. The court heard that Miss Holmsten-Reynolds had dumped items including two beds, two mattresses, bedding and cardboard packaging on Albert Road, Ramsgate on 8 April 2013.
As a result Miss Holmsten-Reynolds was ordered to pay removal costs of £972.36, £100 court costs and a £15 surcharge. 
Cllr. Iris Johnston, Cabinet Member for Community Services, said: “Fly-tipping is totally unacceptable and this successful prosecution is another example of our determination to take action against those who dump rubbish.”
“As well as being anti-social fly-tipping can be potentially dangerous and have a detrimental effect on a whole neighbourhood. Any residents who witness fly-tipping should contact the Council immediately on 01843 577000.”
