A man who illegally ran a car breaking business in Lincolnshire has been handed a three-year conditional discharge.
Pedro Fonseca was sentenced at Boston Magistrates Court on 5 June after pleading guilty to breaking cars at three sites in Boston without an environmental permit. As well as the conditional discharge, he was ordered to pay £4,200 in costs.
The Environment Agency (EA) said Fonseca had no measures in place to prevent risks to the environment and public health at any of the sites on land at Lealand Way, Nursery Road and Marsh Lane. It said there were signs that he did not remove oil or other polluting materials from cars before removing parts.
