Stephen McCaul, who lives in Brook Road, was photographed removing a chair from his van and dumping and dumping it on Villiers Road, in Willesden, by an eagle-eyed neighbourhood manager.

McCaul was initially issued with a £400 Fixed Penalty Notice but when he refused to pay up, Brent Council filed a case at Willesden Magistrates Court.

On May 30th he was found guilty and fined £2,085.

Brent Council's environment chief Cllr Krupa Sheth said: "We will not tolerate illegal rubbish dumping in Brent and this latest victory shows that where we can pursue prosecution we will.
