A fly-tipper who dumped leftover waste from an Indian restaurant in a Swanley car park has been fined.

Suna Meah, from Main Road, Hextable, admitted dumping beer bottle packaging along with empoty egg trays and food bags at Bevan Place Car Park.

Sevenoaks councillor Matthew Dickins said Mr Meah “showed no respect for the law.”

The offences took place between May and July this year and the 50-year-old admitted his guilt on Friday, November 10.

He was ordered to pay £780, which includes the £550 clean up cost originally paid by Sevenoaks District Council.

Cllr Dickins, portfolio holder for direct services, said: “Like other fly-tippers before him, Mr Meah showed no respect for the law, fellow residents or the natural environment we all hold so dear.

“Like others before him, he was caught and brought to justice.

“We will continue to successfully pursue criminals like Mr Meah until the message is understood: the Sevenoaks District is not open to fly-tipping.”
