A man from Doncaster has been ordered to pay a total of £1,792 after being found guilty by Beverley Magistrates following a fly-tipping incident at Tickton. Paul Reddish, 61, was prosecuted for allowing his son to use his van, which was used to dump waste in a lay-by, in a case brought by East Riding of Yorkshire Council. He had pleaded not guilty to the offence, but told the court he had given his son the van to use and that his son was probably the person using it at the time of the offence, which was witnessed by an off-duty police sergeant. Reddish was fined £720, ordered to pay costs of £1,000, and a victim surcharge of £72, totalling £1,792.
