A Birmingham couple who were among the first in the country to be arrested for flytipping have been prosecuted.
Mandy Hale and Keith Smith, both from Moorfield Road, Shard End, were caught by CCTV cameras set up by environmental officers at Solihull Council in one of the borough's dead-end roads.
They were caught last September dumping a van-load of waste, including scrap metal and soil, in Blackfirs Lane.
Fly-tipping was made an arrestable offence in June.
Smith (25) admitted three offences under the Environmental Protection Act 1990, the Highways Act 1980 and the Refuse Disposal Act 1978. He was fined £550 and ordered to pay £250 costs. Hale (27) admitted one offence under the Environmental Protection Act 1990. She was fined £350.
