Jail for illegal landfill operator

The Environment Agency has secured a 21-month jail term for the operator of a long-standing unlicensed landfill. Several businesses which fed the site have also been hauled before the courts - but clean-up costs of up to £250,000 may now fall on the taxpayer. Penalties in other recent waste cases include a prison term for persistent breaches of planning law and tagging of a fly-tipper.
