Some of the 15 bags of rubbish

A man has been fined £400 for dumping 15 black bin bags full of household waste in an alleyway in the Littleworth area of Stafford.

When the 23 year old local man was questioned he said he couldn’t remember where he had dumped the bags…because he had been drunk.

He also told Stafford Borough Council officers that he didn’t recall why he did it – but was moving home and needed to get rid of the rubbish.

The man was given a fixed penalty notice of £400.
