Fly-tippers evade council by giving false details

COUNCIL chiefs were unable to track down three fly-tippers last year after they gave false details.

Figures released under the Freedom of Information Act showed that three enforcement fines “were found to be issued to people who had given false details and were untraceable” by Rotherham Borough Council over the last 12 months.

The data also showed that 18 enforcement notices were issued in Eastwood for littering, dog fouling and fly-tipping offences — seven more than any other ward.

A total of 70 fines were handed out across the Rotherham borough in 2016.
