A FLY-TIPPER has been jailed after he dumped large amounts of waste on a Herefordshire caravan site.

Jamie Turley entered guilty pleas when he appeared before magistrates in Hereford by video link.

The court heard the 33-year-old had dumped a large amount of household waste including a sofa and bags of green waste from a property in Hereford on land at Openfields Caravan Site near Bromyard between June 9, 2018, and June 9, 2020.

He also dumped a large amount of rubbish including furniture, bags of green waste, and white goods from a property in Worcester on the caravan site, and a large amount of general household waste and furniture from a property in Madley between the same dates.

Turley also admitted treating controlled waste in a manner likely to cause environmental pollution or harm to health, failing to handle controlled waste with reasonable measures, and failing to produce transfer notes for the waste when required to do so by an authorised officer between those dates.

Magistrates said the offence was serious because of the nature of his offending and because he is already serving a custodial sentence.

Turley, who is currently of HMP Stafford, was jailed for a total of six months and ordered to pay a £156 victim surcharge. No costs order was made as he was sentenced to a custodial sentence.
