Red Faced Fly Tipper

In the polite society of Barkingside, indeed even after a few beers in the New Fairlop Oak, it is simply not the done thing to laugh at another’s misfortune. But in this case we can make an exception.

On 15th December 2009 at Redbridge Magistrates Court, one Alan Chant of Potter Bar was found guilty of fly-tipping and Fined £150.00, £15.00 Court Costs, £44.00 Compensation to council and £80.00 Prosecution costs. TOTAL - £297.00.

The interesting part is the location where the offence took place. It was to the rear of a shop in Fencepiece Road. Unfortunately for Mr Chant he failed to spot that the shop was actually a Cop Shop, where our local Safer Neighbourhood Teams are based, and that Police Constable Towler was watching him from an upstairs window, after which he was duly nicked.

Haw, haw, chuckle, chuckle, snort!
