Fewer fly-tipping cases reported

Reported incidents of fly-tipping have dropped by more than 10% in part of Kent, according to council figures.

A total of 330 incidents were reported to Sevenoaks District Council, between April and August, compared with 373 during the same period in 2008.

The authority also said three people had been successfully prosecuted for fly-tipping over the past 18 months.

It said fly-tipping was reducing year-on-year and its partnership with the county council was paying dividends.
