Fly-tippers caught red-handed dumping rubbish in country lane

Two members of the same family who were caught dumping rubbish in a country lane have been found guilty of fly-tipping offences.

30-year-old Michael Doran and 29-year-old Johnny Doran were caught red-handed by a covert camera hidden in a lay-by in Peterstone, Cardiff.

Despite the placement of two ‘No Fly-tipping’ signs at either end of Green Lane, the video clearly shows the duo dumping a transit load of rubble and black bin bags.

The camera had been placed there as part of local project led by Natural Resources Wales that aims to tackle the issue of fly-tipping on the Gwent Levels.

Michael Doran pleaded guilty to a series of fly-tipping incidents and was fined £950 and sentenced to a Community Order.

Johnny Doran also pleaded guilty to the four offences and will be sentenced at Isleworth Crown Court later this month.
