The man was fined by Sandwell Council after dumping the rubbish on the High Street car park in Princes End, Tipton.

The man, who lives in Tipton, admitted to fly-tipping the bags after the council was prompted to investigate by a member of Litter Watch.

An environmental enforcement officer issued the man with a £400 Fixed Penalty Notice.

Sandwell Council's deputy leader, Councillor Maria Crompton, said: "Fly-tipping is totally unacceptable and costs the taxpayer a significant amount of money to clear away.

"As a council we need to be concentrating all our efforts on essential services and supporting our most vulnerable residents during the continuing pandemic."

Cabinet member Councillor Danny Millard added: "We use CCTV and reports from the public to help identify the perpetrators of fly-tipping incidents.

"Our staff will investigate every single fly-tipping incident reported to us and we will be issuing £400 fines to anyone who is found to be responsible for fly-tipping."
