Church minister is fined for waste dump

BANBURY: A church minister has been fined £200 for dumping 18 sacks of rubbish.
Manoj Abraham, 35, left the waste on a road between the A4260 Stratford Road and Shenington village in May.
He pleaded guilty at Banbury Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday to the disposal of controlled waste without a permit.
Letters with his name and church details were among the rubbish. Cherwell District Council said he told them he dumped the waste as the tip was closed and it had started to smell.
Chairman of the bench John Kearsey told Abraham: “Someone has to clean up after you – it does not get taken away by the pixies – and it lowers the quality of life for everyone.”
He was fined £200, a £20 victims’ surcharge and £502.06 costs.
