Kilburn fried chicken shop owner fined for illegal dumping
Workers caught on CCTV leaving sacks of food and used oil on busy street
The owner of a fried chicken shop has had his chips after workers were caught illegally dumping their waste on a busy high street.
Liaqat Ali, proprietor of Chicken Express in Kilburn High Road, will have to cough up almost �5,000 after he admitted 12 count of flytipping.
Brent Magistrates’ Court heard his employers were caught on CCTV dumping sacks full of food and old cooking oil once it was dark – typically after 11pm.
Not only were they breaking the law but their actions became a environmental problem as rats and foxes were attacked by the smell.
