    A woman has been ordered to pay more than £1,000, after admitting to three charges of fly-tipping at Manchester Magistrates Court.

    Paula Read was prosecuted following an investigation launched by Manchester City Council’s Environmental Crimes team, after dumped domestic waste was repeatedly found in the Bradford area of Manchester by Biffa operatives working for the council, during spring 2017.

    Evidence linking the offences to Read, 46, was found on each occasion and the Environmental Crimes team repeatedly contacted her, to give her the opportunity to attend an interview under caution.  However, Read ignored all communications and the matter was progressed to prosecution. 

    Read, of Ackroyd Street, attended a court hearing on 22 January 2018 and requested an adjournment.  She then failed to attend a second hearing on 16 February and a warrant was issued, to summon her to hear the charges on Friday 2 March.

    She was fined £140, made to pay costs of £840 and a victim surcharge of £30  - a total of £1,010.
